Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2280) IndexWriter.optimize() throws NullPointerException
Date Wed, 03 Mar 2010 13:56:28 GMT


Ritesh Nigam commented on LUCENE-2280:

Sorry for the delayed response but i was trying to collect some data, I still have to wait
for the log created by lucene APIs after turning on infostream, i will post that log file
as soon as i get it. To answer your questions, i am running on Windows 2003 server with IBM
JRE 1.6 and I am trying to index a database that is about 45 GB in size. On Unix, i am not
facing this issue.

With the lucene logging on, i waited for about 2 days for the NPE to reoccur, but it did not
happen. I was tyring with the stock jar file of lucene 2.3.2. However, indexing failed again
and the index file was again deleted. Looking into the logs this time, I found the following

16:06:48 03/01/2010: Fatal error while indexing CRs.
Stack trace: index\_21f.fdt (The system cannot find the file
	at Method)
	at org.apache.lucene.index.CompoundFileWriter.copyFile(
	at org.apache.lucene.index.CompoundFileWriter.close(
	at org.apache.lucene.index.DocumentsWriter.createCompoundFile(
	at org.apache.lucene.index.IndexWriter.doFlush(
	at org.apache.lucene.index.IndexWriter.flush(
	at org.apache.lucene.index.IndexWriter.closeInternal(
	at org.apache.lucene.index.IndexWriter.close(
	at org.apache.lucene.index.IndexWriter.close(

I am not sure if deletion of the index file when these exceptions are thrown, is the right

I am re-running my test to try and reproduce the NPE issue which i had reported earlier and
i intend to pass on the logs to you as soon as i have it. However, are you aware of any issue
that a combination of IBM JRE + Windows 2003 server would have with lucene?

As far as the code is concern I am closing the indexwriter in finally block, when is thrown
I am logging it in catch block and then finally closing the indexwriter.

I saw an issue logged which is some what related to mine issue (
but the only difference here is I am not using Store.Compress for my fields, i am using Store.NO
instead. please note that I am using IBM JRE for my application.
