Subject Re: addIndexes vs addDocument
Date Wed, 07 Jul 2004 17:10:38 GMT

Okay, got it... however we weren't creating new document objects... just
grabbing a document through an IndexReader and calling addDocument on another
index.  Would that still work with unstored fields(well, its working for us
since we don't have any unstored fields)?

Thanks a lot!
