Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1678) Deprecate Analyzer.tokenStream
Date Wed, 10 Jun 2009 11:18:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1678?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12718032#action_12718032
] 

Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-1678:
--------------------------------------------

bq. The sane/smart way is to do it on a case by case basis.

Right, and the huge periodic discussions on back-compat do soften
"our" stance on these.  For example LUCENE-1542 was just such a case,
where we chose to simply fix the [rather nasty] bug at the expense of
possible apps relying on the broken behavior.

LUCENE-1679 is another (rather trivial) example, where we plan to
change certain fields in WildcardTermEnum to be final.

> The addition of reusableTokenStream to the core analyzers unfortunately broke back compat
of external subclasses:
>     http://www.nabble.com/Extending-StandardAnalyzer-considered-harmful-td23863822.html
> On upgrading, such subclasses would silently not be used anymore, since Lucene's indexing
invokes reusableTokenStream.
> I think we should should at least deprecate Analyzer.tokenStream, today, so that users
see deprecation warnings if their classes override this method.  But going forward when we
want to change the API of core classes that are extended, I think we have to  introduce entirely
new classes, to keep back compatibility.
