Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4285) Improve FST API usability for mere mortals
Date Fri, 05 Oct 2012 18:52:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-4285?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13470555#comment-13470555

David Smiley commented on LUCENE-4285:
--------------------------------------

I just found out that an FST builder.finish() returns null if there's no input basically.
 That is bad API design; it should return an FST with nothing init.  For now I have to have
littered null checks.

> FST technology is something that has brought amazing advances to Lucene, yet the API
is hard to use for the vast majority of users like me.  I know that performance of FSTs is
really important, but surely a lot can be done without sacrificing that.
