Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1439) Inconsistent API
Date Fri, 07 Nov 2008 14:52:55 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1439?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12645778#action_12645778

Mark Miller commented on LUCENE-1439:
-------------------------------------

Patch coming?

I'd classify as improvement rather than bug to start. Also, keep in mind that everything will
have to be backward compatible (though that gets fuzzier as we approach version 3)

>             Project: Lucene - Java
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 3.0
>         Environment: any

> The API of Lucene is totally inconsistent:
> 1)
> There are a lot of containers which don't implement an interface which indicates this
fact
> (for pre-java-1.5 Lucene it could be Collection, for post-ajva-1.5 Lucene it could be
more general Iterable)
> Example:
>  IndexSearcher: "int maxDoc()" and "doc(int i)"
> 2)
> There are a lot of classes having non-final public accessible fields.
> 3)
> Some methods which return values are named something() others are named getSomething()
> Best one is: Fieldable:
> without get: String stringValue(), Reader readerValue(), byte[] binaryValue(), ...
> with get: byte[] getBinaryValue(), int getBinaryLength(), ...
