Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2386) IndexWriter commits unnecessarily on fresh Directory
Date Sun, 11 Apr 2010 16:58:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-2386?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12855752#action_12855752
] 

Yonik Seeley commented on LUCENE-2386:
--------------------------------------

I think Solr's spellchecker should be OK.
It builds the index in one go, so there shouldn't be open IndexWriters hanging around.

If the spellchecker does manage to break, I imagine it would be a bug in the spellchecker
(concurrency related... like what happens when one thread is building the spellcheck index
and another thread comes along and tries to do a spellcheck request, etc)

> 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 :).
