Subject [jira] [Updated] (LUCENE-7916) CompositeBreakIterator is brittle under ICU4J upgrade.
Date Thu, 03 Aug 2017 00:28:01 GMT


Robert Muir updated LUCENE-7916:
    Attachment: LUCENE-7916.patch

Attached is my patch. We need to remove the deprecated constant anyway, to prevent trouble
in the future.

I added TODO's where we load data files with ICU formats. I don't have suggested logic here
yet, esp since I think the stuff is considered internal, so could theoretically break with
any version that isn't *exactly* the one we test with.

> We use lucene-analyzers-icu version 6.6.0 in our project. Lucene 6.6.0 is built against
ICU4J version 56.1, but our use case requires us to use the latest version of ICU4J, 59.1.
> The problem that we have encountered is that CompositeBreakIterator.getBreakIterator(int
scriptCode) throws an ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException for script codes higher than 167. In
ICU4J 56.1 the highest possible script code is 166, but in ICU4j 59.1 it is 174.
> Internally, CompositeBreakIterator is creating an array of size UScript.CODE_LIMIT, but
the value of CODE_LIMIT from ICU4J 56.1 is being baked into the bytecode by the compiler.
So even after overriding the version of the ICU4J dependency to 59.1 in our project, this
array will still be size 167, which is too small.

>        8: anewarray     #3                  // class org/apache/lucene/analysis/icu/segmentation/BreakIteratorWrapper
> {code}
> In our case, the ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException was triggered when we encountered a stray
character of the Bhaiksuki script (script code 168) in a chunk of text that we processed.
> CompositeBreakIterator can be made more resilient by changing the type of wordBreakers
from an array to a Map and no longer relying on the value of UScript.CODE_LIMIT.
