Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2280) IndexWriter.optimize() throws NullPointerException
Date Wed, 24 Feb 2010 11:24:28 GMT


Ritesh Nigam commented on LUCENE-2280:

Are you sure you're using a stock version 2.3.2 of Lucene?
- Yes, I checked the manifest of the jar.

I ask because... the line numbers in SegmentMerger (specifically 566) don't correlate to 2.3.2.
The other line numbers do match. It's odd.

But looking at the code I don't see how either of the arrays being passed to System.arraycopy
can be null.

Can you turn on IndexWriter's infoStream and capture & post the output?
- I have turned on the infostream for IndexWriter, it will take some time to get the result.
once I get the result I will post that.

It's also strange that this leads to index corruption; it shouldn't (the merge should just
fail, and the index should be untouched). Can you run CheckIndex on the index and post what
corruption it uncovers.
- Here index corruption I mean that the main index file is getting deleted and search is not
returning expected result. Hence there is no index file exists after the NullPointerExcepton,
I cannot run CheckIndex.

Does this happen in a Sun JRE?
- I have not yet tested the same scenario on Sun JRE till now.

I saw an issue logged which is some what related to mine issue (
but the only difference here is I am not using Store.Compress for my fields, i am using Store.NO
instead. please note that I am using IBM JRE for my application.
