Subject neither IndexWriter nor IndexReader would delete documents
Date Sun, 18 Nov 2007 22:16:07 GMT

Hallo *;

I went through some examples of the Lucene in Action book to find that the
API has changed and then applied the corrections with the help of this
One runtime problem however remains. I cannot delete any documents.
I store documents like this:

IndexWriter iw = new IndexWriter(
	new File(Constants.INDEX_FILENAME), new StandardAnalyzer());
Document document = new Document();
document.add(new Field("doc", doc, Field.Store.YES, Field.Index.NO));

Which works fine. But deleting them like this:

Directory fsDir = FSDirectory.getDirectory(new File(
IndexReader ir =;
ir.deleteDocuments(new Term("uid", uid));

Has absolutely no effect. I also tried delete on the IndexWriter - no
Please help! I don't know where to investigate any further!

Thx Eric
