Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4639) Improving _TestUtil.getTempDir

Dawid Weiss commented on LUCENE-4639:
-------------------------------------

bq. But Robert put that code there, and he's been right about everything else on that issue
and that code.

I'm sure he'll speak up if it was some magic wisdom we're not aware of ;) This said, this
makes whoever reads the code stop and waste his time on thinking wtf. this is. I think the
idea was to have a random number fit in a constant number of digits; effectively the same
thing (even shorter but with hex digits) can be achieved by doing:
{code}
String.format(Locale.ENGLISH, "%04x", rnd.nextInt() & 0xFFFF); 
{code}

> Spinoff from here: http://lucene.472066.n3.nabble.com/TestUtil-getTempFile-may-fail-on-quot-Access-Denied-quot-td4028048.html.
> _TestUtil.getTempDir uses createTempFile and then deletes the file. While this usually
works, if someone runs tests by multiple JVMs and does not ensure each JVM gets an isolated
temp.dir to work in, that my result in two JVMs sharing the same directory.
> Also, on Windows, if you call getTempDir on an existing directory, you get an "Access
is denied" exception.
> Dawid proposed a simple solution to just call mkdirs() continuously until success. I'd
like to try that.
> Also, I think that genTempFile could use some house cleaning, e.g.:
> * tempFileLocker can be just an Object instance? Why do we need a class?
> * If we initialize counter and counterBase in a static clause, we can avoid checking
if counter==0 as well as passing Random to genTempFile (that will remove any suspicion that
it does anything randomly)
> ** Also, instead of synchronizing on tempFileLocker, can we just use AtomicInteger for
the counter?
> I'll modify getTempDir first. It documents "does not create the directory", I want to
make sure no test fails due that.
