Subject [jira] Updated: (LUCENE-985) AIOOB thrown when length of termText is longer than 16384 characters (ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException)
Date Sat, 18 Aug 2007 00:56:30 GMT


Michael McCandless updated LUCENE-985:

    Attachment: LUCENE-985.patch

> I doubt anyone will have a problem with the limit. And if they hit

I've added a blurb in javadoc for IndexWriter.addDocument explaining
this limit.

Thanks for catching this Karl!
