Subject RE: OutOfMemoryError
Date Wed, 18 Aug 2004 08:22:01 GMT
Terence, 

This may help:
http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=30628
I had the problem, above...but I managed to resolve it be not closing
the indexsearcher. Instead I now reuse the same indexsearcher all of the
time within my JSP code as an application variable. GC keeps memory in
check on my System now and search is faster too.

Also, make sure that you are using 1.4.1 as it fixes a sort caching
problem in 1.4

  if ((application.getAttribute("searcher")) != null){
    searcher = (IndexSearcher)application.getAttribute("searcher");
  }	
  else {
    searcher = new IndexSearcher(IndexReader.open(indexName));
      application.setAttribute("searcher", searcher);
  }

the correct search results to me. As more and more search requests being processed, the server
ends up having the OutOfMemoryError. If I restart the server, every thing works fine again.
