Subject Re: IndexWriter and IndexReader open at the same time

If you have the Lucene book, look at Chapter 2 (page 59 under section
2.9 (Concurrency, thread-safety, and locking issues) in chapter 2

Also, look at Lucene's Bugzilla, where you'll find a contribution that
helps with concurrent IndexReader/IndexWriter usage.
