Merging of compressed string Fields may hit NPE

                 Key: LUCENE-1374
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Index
    Affects Versions: 2.4
            Reporter: Michael McCandless
            Assignee: Michael McCandless
             Fix For: 2.4

This bug was introduced with LUCENE-1219 (only present on 2.4).

The bug happens when merging compressed string fields, but only if bulk-merging code does
not apply because the FieldInfos for the segment being merged are not congruent.  This test
shows the bug:

  public void testMergeCompressedFields() throws IOException {
    File indexDir = new File(System.getProperty("tempDir"), "mergecompressedfields");
    Directory dir = FSDirectory.getDirectory(indexDir);
    try {
      for(int i=0;i<5;i++) {
        // Must make a new writer & doc each time, w/
        // different fields, so bulk merge of stored fields
        // cannot run:
        IndexWriter w = new IndexWriter(dir, new WhitespaceAnalyzer(), i==0, IndexWriter.MaxFieldLength.UNLIMITED);
        w.setMergeScheduler(new SerialMergeScheduler());
        Document doc = new Document();
        doc.add(new Field("test1", "this is some data that will be compressed this this this",
Field.Store.COMPRESS, Field.Index.NO));
        doc.add(new Field("test2", new byte[20], Field.Store.COMPRESS));
        doc.add(new Field("field" + i, "random field", Field.Store.NO, Field.Index.TOKENIZED));

      byte[] cmp = new byte[20];

      IndexReader r =;
      for(int i=0;i<5;i++) {
        Document doc = r.document(i);
        assertEquals("this is some data that will be compressed this this this", doc.getField("test1").stringValue());
        byte[] b = doc.getField("test2").binaryValue();
        assertTrue(Arrays.equals(b, cmp));
    } finally {

It's because in FieldsReader, when we load a field "for merge" we create a FieldForMerge instance
which subsequently does not return the right values for getBinary{Value,Length,Offset}.
