Subject RE: Removing a write.lock file
Date Thu, 18 Apr 2002 14:51:58 GMT

The write.lock file won't be there if you close the index using a lock
mechanism. I use my own RWLock to access the index dir and unlock it after I
close the index. Basically, the access to the index is synchronized. I have
never had any problems with this approach.
