Subject Restoring the Snapshot taken by Lucene
Date Mon, 20 Jun 2016 10:30:55 GMT

In my project, we are using Lucene 5.5.0. We took advantage of the Snapshot API (Persistent)
to take the snapshot of the indexes which are currently being used in the application.

The indexes are stored in the directory. The snapshot takes the snapshot of the indexes and
store it in another directory.

The snapshot is getting generated properly.

However, I have no means to restore the snapshot taken. Say suppose I wish to restore the
snapshot into the current indexing directory.

How do we go about restoring the snapshot so that I can fire search queries on it. Also once
the indexes are restored, we would be doing incremental indexing on it.

Is there any way out to achieve both of these activities? (Restoring the snapshot to allow
search and doing incremental indexing on the restored snapshot)
