Subject [jira] Created: (LUCENE-1875) Javadoc of TokenStream.end() somehow confusing

Javadoc of TokenStream.end() somehow confusing
----------------------------------------------

                 Key: LUCENE-1875
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1875
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Analysis
    Affects Versions: 2.9
            Reporter: Uwe Schindler
             Fix For: 2.9


The Javadocs of TokenStream.end() are somehow confusing, because they also refer to the old
TokenStream API ("after next() returned null"). But one who implements his TokenStream with
the old API cannot make use of the end() feature, as he would not use attributes and so cannot
update the end offsets (he could, but then he should rewrite the whole TokenStream). To be
conform to the old API, there must be an end(Token) method, which we will not add.

I would drop the old API from this docs.
