Subject IndexReader.reopen() If Index Has Been Rebuilt
Date Wed, 13 Feb 2013 18:28:25 GMT
We're using Lucene 3.3.0 and have an index with close to 10 million
documents.  When the application is started and the first search is
performed, we open a read only IndexReader by calling, true).  For all following searches, we
check if the indexReader is current and if not, call IndexReader.reopen().
 What happens if we rebuild the index from scratch while using the same
IndexReader and only refreshing it by calling reopen?  I can't seem to find
any solid documentation explaining this, but have read a few things that
are giving me the impression that this may not be the best approach.  Can
someone at least point me to some documentation regarding this?

Thank you!
