Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2818) abort() method for IndexOutput
Date Sat, 18 Dec 2010 10:06:00 GMT


Earwin Burrfoot commented on LUCENE-2818:

bq. I think we can make a default impl that simply closes & suppresses exceptions? (We
can't .deleteFile since an abstract IO doesn't know its Dir). Our concrete impls can override
w/ versions that do delete the file...
I don't think we need a default impl? For some directory impls close() is a noop + what is
more important, having abstract method forces you to implement it, you can't forget this,
so we're not gonna see broken directories that don't do abort() properly.

> I'd like to see abort() method on IndexOutput that silently (no exceptions) closes IO
and then does silent papaDir.deleteFile(this.fileName()).
> This will simplify a bunch of error recovery code for IndexWriter and friends, but constitutes
an API backcompat break.
