Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2386) IndexWriter commits unnecessarily on fresh Directory
Date Sun, 11 Apr 2010 19:20:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-2386?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12855767#action_12855767
] 

Shai Erera commented on LUCENE-2386:
------------------------------------

About IndexReader.listCommits ... the javadocs state this "There must be at least one commit
in the Directory, else this method throws java.io.IOException.". So I'll change it to reflect
the right exception type is thrown (IndexNotFoundException) and revert the change to DirReader.listCommits
which returns an empty list.

> I've noticed IndexWriter's ctor commits a first commit (empty one) if a fresh Directory
is passed, w/ OpenMode.CREATE or CREATE_OR_APPEND. This seems unnecessarily, and kind of brings
back an autoCommit mode, in a strange way ... why do we need that commit? Do we really expect
people to open an IndexReader on an empty Directory which they just passed to an IW w/ create=true?
If they want, they can simply call commit() right away on the IW they created.
> I ran into this when writing a test which committed N times, then compared the number
of commits (via IndexReader.listCommits) and was surprised to see N+1 commits.
> Tried to change doCommit to false in IW ctor, but it got IndexFileDeleter jumping on
me .. so the change might not be that simple. But I think it's manageable, so I'll try to
attack it (and IFD specifically !) back :).
