Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-887) Interruptible segment merges
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2007 18:29:15 GMT


Michael Busch commented on LUCENE-887:

We could also add new methods (not abstract) to Directory:
  boolean isInterruptable();
  void interrupt();
  void clearInterrupt();
By default isInterruptable() would return false and the other two wouldn't
do anything. Only some Directory implementations should then overwrite these
methods, like FSDirectory.

What I don't like about this is that we would have to make those methods
public, because IndexWriter has to call them.

> Adds the ability to IndexWriter to interrupt an ongoing merge. This might be necessary
when Lucene is e. g. running as a service and has to stop indexing within a certain period
of time due to a shutdown request.
> A solution would be to add a new method shutdown() to IndexWriter which satisfies the
following two requirements:
