Subject Re: How to properly use updatedocument in lucene.
Date Thu, 31 Jan 2013 12:05:15 GMT
It's confusing, but you should never try to re-index a document you
retrieved from a searcher, because certain index-time details (eg,
whether a field was tokenized) are not preserved in the stored
document.

Instead, you should re-build the document yourself, setting the right
details per-Field, and then re-index that.

Separately, that's the right way to call .updateDocument, but you must
ensure FILE_NAME_FIELD was indexed for the first document, with the
value "new1.docx".

Can you include how you indexed the original document?
