Subject How to close the wrapped directory implementation
Date Fri, 17 Sep 2010 23:33:58 GMT
With RAMDirectory we have the option of providing another Directory
implementation such as FSDirectory that can be wrapped and loaded into

Directory directory = new RAMDirectory(

But after building the index, if I close the IndexWriter then the data
is still available for searches in the directory bean but nothing ever
gets written to the disk!

Is this a bug? Is there a workaround?

Or is this by design? Is the RAMDirectory constructor only meant to
read in data from the passed in argument? Or is it supposed to keep it
around and update it when closing?

Please write back, Thanks!
