The mailing list server doesn't allow most attachments (i think the magic
incantation is to make sure your mail client indicates that the
attachments are plain text -- not some fancy type like text/x-java-source
or application/x-java)

try including it inline in your email.

: Subject: Re: IndexSearcher memory leak?
:
: Thanks for the fast response -- you're right, I had a typo in the code snippet.
:
: I've attached the test code that reproduces the OutOfMemoryException.
: The code is a simple main method that repeatedly opens/searches/closes
: an index using RAMDirectory.  Maybe there's something I'm overlooking,
: but it appears that when the Searcher is declared outside of the loop,
: that's when the OutOfMemoryException occurs.  If the searcher is
: declared inside of the loop, then there's no memory problem.
:
: The motivation for this test code is that I plan to write a
: long-running server that periodically reopens an index -- so clearly
: I'd want to be able to close and open the index without leaking any
: memory.
:
: Any insight on why the memory exception occurs and how to resolve it
: would be greatly appreciated.

: Thanks!
