Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1516) Integrate IndexReader with IndexWriter
Date Wed, 04 Mar 2009 00:52:56 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1516?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12678528#action_12678528
] 

Jason Rutherglen commented on LUCENE-1516:
------------------------------------------

Because the patch does not flush deletes to disk like the existing
code does, the SegmentInfo delGen etc isn't updated at the same
points as expected. In tracing the code the .del files that have 0
refs then are decRefed throwing the assertion error were never
incRefed by IndexFileDeleter. This is because the deletes are carried
over in the IW internal readers. Eventually the .del files are
written but aren't increfed as they usually would be. Is there a good
solution to this? Do we need an interim SegmentInfo variable that
indicates future flushed deletions?

> The current problem is an IndexReader and IndexWriter cannot be open
> at the same time and perform updates as they both require a write
> lock to the index. While methods such as IW.deleteDocuments enables
> deleting from IW, methods such as IR.deleteDocument(int doc) and
> norms updating are not available from IW. This limits the
> capabilities of performing updates to the index dynamically or in
> realtime without closing the IW and opening an IR, deleting or
> updating norms, flushing, then opening the IW again, a process which
> can be detrimental to realtime updates. 
> This patch will expose an IndexWriter.getReader method that returns
> the currently flushed state of the index as a class that implements
> IndexReader. The new IR implementation will differ from existing IR
> implementations such as MultiSegmentReader in that flushing will
> synchronize updates with IW in part by sharing the write lock. All
> methods of IR will be usable including reopen and clone.
