Subject [jira] Updated: (LUCENE-1658) Absorb NIOFSDirectory into FSDirectory
Date Sat, 30 May 2009 23:40:07 GMT


Uwe Schindler updated LUCENE-1658:

    Attachment: LUCENE-1658-take2.patch

This is a revised patch (on current trunk):
- was removed, the logic was included into FSDir.getDirectory and this un-deprectated:
If the system property is missing, the same like in Mikes open() happens: choosing the best
impl for platform
- Caching of FSDirs was completely removed
- FSDir.IndexInput/Output (deprected) was removed (suplicate code) and simply replaced by
(deprecated) subclasses of SimpleFSDir ones). This is OK for backwards compatibility.

Some tests currently fail:
- TestCompoundFile (do not know why)
- TestLockFactory (test is obsolete, execption can only occur on cached dirs)
- Sometimes reopen does not work because already closed (see LUCENE-1453)

- Remove the caching code completely (currently comented out)
- Fix 1453, because if somebody uses a self-instantiated FSDir and not the default, the reopened
dir would use the default again! So fix (maybe clone of FSDir, or LUCENE-1453 is obsolete
without caching?).

This patch also contains an overflow fix in MMapDir for files <2 GB but large. "int*int"
should be written as "(long)int*int", if the result maybe large (thanks Earwin!).
