Subject [Lucene-java Wiki] Update of "LuceneFAQ" by blueye118

Dear Wiki user,

  Even though index searching is a read only operation, the !IndexSearcher must momentarily
lock the index when it is opened in order to get the list of files in the index.  If locking
is not configured properly it gets an incorrect list (because the list of files changes as
the !IndexWriter adds docs or optimizes the index).  Remote filesystems (like NFS and Samba)
rarely work, because they cannot make the transactional guarantees neccessary to ensure that
all clients get consistent views of the directory.
