Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3911) Make Directory and DirectoryFactory first class so that the majority of Solr's features work with any custom implementations.
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2012 06:47:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-3911?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13474841#comment-13474841

Mark Miller commented on SOLR-3911:
-----------------------------------

I think I'm close to committing something. Patch is getting big enough that it will be really
annoying to keep up to date - so I'd like to commit and start baking in trunk as soon as possible.
I'll post my latest work tomorrow.

> The biggest issue is that many parts of Solr rely on a local file system based Directory
implementation - most notably, replication. This should all be changed to use the Directory
and DirectoryFactory abstractions.
> Other parts of the code that count on the local file system for making paths and getting
file sizes should also be changed to use Directory and/or DirectoryFactory.
> Original title: Replication should work with any Directory impl, not just local filesystem
based Directories.
> I've wanted to do this for a long time - there is no reason replication should not support
any directory impl. This will let us use the mockdir for replication tests rather than having
to force an FSDir and lose all the extra test checks and simulations. This will improve our
testing around replication a lot, and allow custom Directory impls to be used on multi node
Solr.
> Expanded scope - full first class support for DirectoryFactory and Directory.
