Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3631) Remove write access from SegmentReader and possibly move to separate class or IndexWriter/BufferedDeletes/...
Date Sun, 11 Mar 2012 13:18:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-3631?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13227042#comment-13227042
] 

Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-3631:
--------------------------------------------

bq. Guys, is it possible in a current implementation to update the doc values fields without
re-indexing a whole document?

Not yet, though LUCENE-3837 is exploring how to update postings (not doc values though) for
one field in a doc...

> After LUCENE-3606 is finished, there are some TODOs:
> SegmentReader still contains (package-private) all delete logic including crazy copyOnWrite
for validDocs Bits. It would be good, if SegmentReader itsself could be read-only like all
other IndexReaders.
> There are two possibilities to do this:
> # the simple one: Subclass SegmentReader and make a RWSegmentReader that is only used
by IndexWriter/BufferedDeletes/... DirectoryReader will only use the read-only SegmentReader.
This would move all TODOs to a separate class. It's reopen/clone method would always create
a RO-SegmentReader (for NRT).
> # Remove all write and commit stuff from SegmentReader completely and move it to IndexWriter's
readerPool (it must be in readerPool as deletions need a not-changing view on an index snapshot).
> Unfortunately the code is so complicated and I have no real experience in those internals
of IndexWriter so I did not want to do it with LUCENE-3606, I just separated the code in SegmentReader
and marked with TODO. Maybe Mike McCandless can help :-)
