Subject Re: Forcing an IndexReader to read-only
Date Wed, 30 Aug 2006 18:35:11 GMT

IndexReaders are "read only" by default ... they obtain a lock on teh
index very breifly when they are open to ensure that they get a consistent
view of the index, but that lock is then released and the IndexReader ha
no further need to lock the index unless you attempt a delete.
