Subject [jira] [Updated] (LUCENE-3612) remove _X.fnx
Date Wed, 30 Nov 2011 21:27:40 GMT


Robert Muir updated LUCENE-3612:

    Attachment: LUCENE-3612.patch

Patch: all tests pass.

before committing I think we should cleanup some apis/javadocs, remove the various versioning
stuff (now unused), and not read/write it in segments files.

> Currently we store a global (not per-segment) field number->name mapping in _X.fnx
> However, it doesn't actually save us any performance e.g on IndexWriter's init because
> since LUCENE-2984 we are to loading the fieldinfos anyway to compute files() for IFD,
> as thats where hasProx/hasVectors is.
> Additionally in the past global files like shared doc stores have caused us problems,
> (recently we just fixed a bug related to this file in LUCENE-3601).
> Finally this is trouble for backwards compatibility as its difficult to handle a global
> file with the codecs mechanism.
