Subject Problem with lucene 1.9.1
Date Wed, 03 May 2006 19:59:28 GMT

I am having problems using lucene 1.9.1. I was using 1.4.3 successfully, and tried upgrading
to 1.9.1. As I changed my source code so I would no longer be invocating deprecated methods,
the application no longer worked properly, i.e. the IndexModifier was no longer storing documents.
Here is my source code:



import org.apache.lucene.analysis.Analyzer;
import org.apache.lucene.analysis.standard.StandardAnalyzer;
import org.apache.lucene.document.Document;
import org.apache.lucene.document.Field;
import org.apache.lucene.index.IndexModifier;

public class UserIndexer {

 public static final String ID = "userId";
 public static final String KEYWORDS = "searchKeywords";
 public static final String USERNAME = "searchUsername";

 private final File index;
 private final Analyzer analyzer;
 private IndexModifier modifier; 

 public UserIndexer(final Analyzer analyzer, final String dir) throws IOException {
      index = new File(dir);
      this.analyzer = analyzer;
      synchronized(UserIndexer.class) {
           if (!index.exists()) {
      this.modifier = new IndexModifier(this.index, this.analyzer, true);

 public UserIndexer(final String dir) throws IOException {
      this(new StandardAnalyzer(), dir);
 private Document getDocument(final SearchItem searchItem) {
      Document doc = new Document(); 
      doc.add(new Field(ID, ((Integer) searchItem.getValue(SearchItemField.ID)).toString(),
Field.Store.YES, Field.Index.UN_TOKENIZED));
      doc.add(new Field(KEYWORDS, (String) searchItem.getValue(SearchItemField.KEYWORD), Field.Store.YES,
      doc.add(new Field(USERNAME, (String) searchItem.getValue(SearchItemField.NAME), Field.Store.YES,
      return doc;
 public synchronized void add(final SearchItem searchItem) throws IOException { 
     modifier.deleteDocuments(new Term(ID, ((Integer) searchItem.getValue(SearchItemField.ID)).toString()));
     Document doc = this.getDocument(searchItem);
     System.out.println(modifier.docCount() + " docs in index");


SearchItem is a custom class that has the data to be used by lucene. The relevant method in
there is 

void add(final SearchItem searchItem) 

which calls lucene's 'addDocument' method. It used to work back when I was using Field.Keyword,
Field.Text and modifier.delete --- but all these got deprecated, so.... Here's what happens:
no matter how many documents I add, all I get is '1 docs in index'. If I DON'T close the modifier,
I get the right results 2, 3, 4 docs in index etc --- but if the application is restarted,
the docs are lost, i.e. a search that should return 2 or 3 results returns no result at all.

Any ideas where to start? What to fix? If I should go back using the deprecated methods? I
tried using FSDirectory instead of File, didn't work. I tried not deleting the documents before
adding them, it didn't work. I tried using a custom analyzer, it didn't work. I'm running
out of ideas.

Thank you very much for your attention,
