Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3992) TestIndexWriterOnJRECrash failure
Date Mon, 16 Apr 2012 18:26:19 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-3992:

OK i know, its a super-sneaky bug in the test.

This bug has been around since LUCENE-3687, but the test is only run nightly, so i just happened
to trip it.

The problem is (as described in LUCENE-3687), we don't have perfect 3.x emulation. So PreFlexRWFieldInfosWriter
currently writes a 'very close to 3.x format' and has a specialized FieldInfosReader to handle
This kicks in when preflex impersonation is on: LuceneTestCase.PREFLEX_IMPERSONATION_IS_ACTIVE

But this test creates the file in a separate JVM so it can crash it, and doesnt handle these
impersonated indexes.
I'll figure out a way to fix the test...
