Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2779) Use ConcurrentHashMap in RAMDirectory
Date Tue, 30 Nov 2010 19:54:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-2779?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12965390#action_12965390

Yonik Seeley commented on LUCENE-2779:
--------------------------------------

bq. The question is, why should we rely on toArray() implemented one way or the other in which
JDK?

Both Harmony and IBM's implementations are broken - it's not an issue of a different but still
valid implementation.

bq. Actually I think [sadly] it is our responsibility to sidestep JRE bugs when we can. We
want to maximize Lucene's portability.

+1 (within reason)
In this case, it's relatively straightforward to do so, and it's not in an inner-loop.

> RAMDirectory synchronizes on its instance in many places to protect access to map of
RAMFiles, in addition to updating the sizeInBytes member. In many places the sync is done
for 'read' purposes, while only in few places we need 'write' access. This looks like a perfect
use case for ConcurrentHashMap
> Also, syncing around sizeInBytes is unnecessary IMO, since it's an AtomicLong ...
> I'll post a patch shortly.
