Subject [jira] Resolved: (LUCENE-166) Possibility to update fields of an existing document
Date Thu, 27 Oct 2005 17:27:55 GMT
     [ ]
Otis Gospodnetic resolved LUCENE-166:

    Resolution: Won't Fix
     Assign To:     (was: Lucene Developers)

Not currently possible, but I've seen some patches for that a whiiiile back, so you may want
to look for them.  If you find them and like them, and they work for you, please provide a
patch that works with the Lucene code in the repository.

> Hi, this is probably gonna be rejected but...
> We're using lucene to index documents content (word, pdf etc.) with their meta 
> data.
> The meta data is used to implement access rights to the documents.
> It is possible (in our system) to change the meta data without the content but 
> currently we have to re-index to entire document (which can take a significant
> amount of time especially for large PDF's).
> This results in a performance hit on the server which may not be necessary. Is 
> it possible to add a method to update only some fields of a lucene document and 
> leave the content fields as is?
