Subject [jira] Updated: (LUCENE-2943) ICU collator thread-safety issues
Date Mon, 28 Feb 2011 22:34:36 GMT


Robert Muir updated LUCENE-2943:

    Attachment: LUCENE-2943.patch

Updated patch: I clone the JDK ones too.

Its not really the case that these are "thread-safe", instead really what happens is their
methods are synced (if they are correct). So its good to clone to reduce contention.

Also i took a look at harmony, which simply wraps the ICU impl and doesn't sync, which means
its not thread safe (but should be).

For these reasons I think we should just clone the JDK one for safety too.
