Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1584) Callback for intercepting merging segments in IndexWriter
Date Tue, 07 Apr 2009 14:39:13 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-1584:

bq. This is required in one form or another for any kinds of segment-aware caches.

The problem is you need more information than simply "these segments got merged" to actually
do something interesting with your caches.

EG you'd need to know which deleted docs got zapped, right?

bq. We're currently using our own field cache (I doubt we'll ever switch back to lucene's
native, fixed one or not)

Can you explain what's missing in Lucene's FieldCache?  (Since we are going to build a new
one for LUCENE-831 it'd be great to address all known limitations...).
