Subject [jira] Created: (LUCENE-1439) Inconsistent API
Date Fri, 07 Nov 2008 12:34:45 GMT
Inconsistent API 
-----------------

                 Key: LUCENE-1439
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1439
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 3.0
         Environment: any
            Reporter: Ivan.S


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(), ...
