Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4276) refuse to execute on broken corrupting jvms
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2012 14:37:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-4276?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13425810#comment-13425810

Shai Erera commented on LUCENE-4276:
------------------------------------

An external file allows one to add additional versions later on. E.g. we don't know today
that an already released JVM doesn't cause such bugs, because we didn't test it, or it will
appear later on. It's another reason to put this check in a file.

Then, for people that use Lucene to create software for other people, they can add such versions
to the file, instead of recompiling Lucene.

> There are some jvms where we know lucene does not work at all and will just produce things
like corrupt indexes.
> We should detect this in a static block of Constants.java and refuse to run at all.
