Subject Re: lucene locks index, tomcat has to stop and restart
Date Tue, 07 Sep 2004 21:03:00 GMT
This isn't a Tomcat specific problem, but sounds like a problem with
how you the reader is being used.

Somewhere in the JSP a IndexReader variable was probably assigned to.
A line something like:

IndexReader ir ="somepath");

To close the reader, and thus solve the problem, somewhere later, you need:


with the needed try/catch in place. 

Again, please refrain from cross-posting...just because it happened on
Tomcat doesn't make it a Tomcat problem. This is clearly a lucene
usage problem.
