Subject [jira] [Created] (SOLR-2983) Unable to load custom MergePolicy
Date Wed, 21 Dec 2011 10:39:30 GMT
Unable to load custom MergePolicy
---------------------------------

                 Key: SOLR-2983
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-2983
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Mathias Herberts


As part of a recent upgrade to Solr 3.5.0 we encountered an error related to our use of LinkedIn's
ZoieMergePolicy.

It seems the code that loads a custom MergePolicy was at some point moved into SolrIndexConfig.java
from SolrIndexWriter.java, but as this code was copied verbatim it now contains a bug:

    try {
      policy = (MergePolicy) schema.getResourceLoader().newInstance(mpClassName, null, new
Class[]{IndexWriter.class}, new Object[]{this});
    } catch (Exception e) {
      policy = (MergePolicy) schema.getResourceLoader().newInstance(mpClassName);
    }

'this' is no longer an IndexWriter but a SolrIndexConfig, therefore the call to newInstance
will always throw an exception and the catch clause will be executed. If the custom MergePolicy
does not have a default constructor (which is the case of ZoieMergePolicy), the second attempt
to create the MergePolicy will also fail and Solr won't start.
