Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1721) IndexWriter to allow deletion by doc ids
Date Mon, 29 Jun 2009 12:03:47 GMT


Tim Smith commented on LUCENE-1721:

how about a delete method on the IndexWriter that takes a segment number and a document id

it would also be required to add methods to the IndexReader to get the segment number and
local document id for a docid, but this should then work just fine

> It would be great if IndexWriter would allow for deletion by doc ids as well. It makes
sense for cases where a "query" has been executed beforehand, and later, that query needs
to be applied in order to delete the matched documents.
