Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2675) Add support for 3.0 indexes in 2.9 branch
Date Mon, 27 Sep 2010 21:46:32 GMT


Uwe Schindler commented on LUCENE-2675:

Additionally I opened this issue, so I can point those people to this issue, so they can patch
their Lucene 2.9 to do what they expect. EVen if this gets rejected somehow. I am simply tired
of sending this patch out to everyone.

This would make the migration easier. There is no problem in doing that, as the new stored
fields version in Lucene 3.0 is only used to mark a segment's stored fields file as no longer
containing compressed fields. But index format did not really change. This patch simply allows
FieldsReader to pass a Lucene 3.0 version number, but still writes segments in 2.9 format
(as you could suddenly turn on compression for added documents).
> I added ZIP files for 3.0 indexes for TestBackwards. Without the patch it does not pass,
as FieldsReader complains about incorrect version number (although it could read the file
easily). If we would release maybe a 2.9.4 release of Lucene we should include that patch.
