Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-5679) Consolidate IndexWriter.deleteDocuments()
Date Tue, 20 May 2014 16:18:39 GMT


Uwe Schindler commented on LUCENE-5679:

See my comment on the mailing list about 4.x:


this is a binary backwards break in 4.x, because the method signature, user's code was compiled
against in previous versions, is removed for no reason. In 4.x I would keep the one-arg methods,
but just let it delegate to the vararg version. The javadocs can stay the same.
In fact this change requires to recompile your source-code (source-code compatibility is ensured)
but does not provide binary compatibility.
