Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-5953) Make LockFactory final on Directory
Date Wed, 17 Sep 2014 01:23:34 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-5953:

strong +1.

Lets simplify and make this safer. I agree too, the interaction between Directory and LockFactory
is confusing. 

How can we make this as simple and error-free as possible?

It is a bug to change the LockFactory after creating a directory, because you may break locking
(if locks are currently held).
> The LockFactory should be passed on ctor only.
> The other suggestion: Should LockFactory have a directory at all? We moved away from
having the lock separately from the index directory. This is no longer a supported configuration
(since approx Lucene 2.9 or 3.0). I would like to remove the directory from LockFactory and
make it part of the Directory only.
