Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-5152) Lucene FST is not immutable
Date Wed, 07 Aug 2013 15:12:48 GMT


Simon Willnauer commented on LUCENE-5152:

{quote}In fact, I think findTargetArc isn't great in this regard; e.g. I
think MemoryPF only uses this API if the caller calls seekExact? So I
think the current location of the assert is both more costly and lower
coverage than if we moved it to FST.getBytesReader.{quote}

I am not sure if that is true actually since findTargetArc is the only place where we actually
use this cache? I mean I don't wanna be in the way of moving it but what kind of message are
we sending here. We don't guarantee that asserts are fast but they won't slow you down massively?
I mean we can call this assert in the getBytesReader as well to increase coverage, can you
elaborate what you are concerned about?

> I added an assertion into the FST that checks if a cached root arc is modified and in-fact
this happens for instance in our MemoryPostingsFormat and I bet we find more places. We need
to think about how to make this less trappy since it can cause bugs that are super hard to
