Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3485) LuceneTaxonomyReader .decRef() may close the inner IR, renderring the LTR in a limbo.
Date Wed, 05 Oct 2011 04:24:34 GMT


Shai Erera commented on LUCENE-3485:

I had another look at the patch, and something bothers me about ensureOpen() and how close
is set to true. Currently, if I call close(), and another thread has an instance of TR, any
operations he'll try to do will fail by ensureOpen().

I think that we should remove 'close' and check on IR.refCount(). When it's <= 0, we're
closed for business, otherwise the TR should not be marked close().

I looked at IndexReader and two things:
# Its ensureOpen checks refCount()
# Its close looks entirely redundant ...

> TaxonomyReader which supports ref-counting, has a decRef() method which delegates to
an inner IndexReader and calls its .decRef(). The latter may close the reader (if the ref
is zeroes) but the taxonomy would remain 'open' which will fail many of its method calls.
> Also, the LTR's .close() method does not work in the same manner as IndexReader's - which
calls decRef(), and leaves the real closing logic to the decRef(). I believe this should be
the right approach for the fix.
