Subject Re: setNorm/commit issue on Windows
Date Mon, 28 Aug 2006 04:50:03 GMT

: If you have an index that has separate norms (.sN or .fN files), and
: you open a reader against this index, and then try to use another
: reader to change (& commit) the norms, that second reader will hit an
: IOException (Access Denied) on Windows during commit because the first

setNorms is definitely some funky voodoo -- not intended for general use.
It would nto suprise me in the least if using it while another IndexReader
was opened didn't work -- on Windows or any other platform.

Given it's nature, i would treat the results of using it during concurrent
access from other threads/process the same as IndexReader.unlock -- scary,
and unadvised.
