Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-3230) Make FSDirectory.fsync() public and static
Date Wed, 22 Jun 2011 14:12:47 GMT
Make FSDirectory.fsync() public and static

                 Key: LUCENE-3230
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: core/store
            Reporter: Shai Erera
            Assignee: Shai Erera
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 3.3, 4.0

I find FSDirectory.fsync() (today protected and instance method) very useful as a utility
to sync() files. I'd like create a FSDirectory.sync() utility which contains the exact same
impl of FSDir.fsync(), and have the latter call it. We can have it part of IOUtils too, as
it's a completely standalone utility.

I would get rid of FSDir.fsync() if it wasn't protected (as if encouraging people to override
it). I doubt anyone really overrides it (our core Directories don't).

Also, while reviewing the code, I noticed that if IOE occurs, the code sleeps for 5 msec.
If an InterruptedException occurs then, it immediately throws ThreadIE, completely ignoring
the fact that it slept due to IOE. Shouldn't we at least pass IOE.getMessage() on ThreadIE?

The patch is trivial, so I'd like to get some feedback before I post it.
