Subject Re: spellcheck index blown away during rebuild
Date Thu, 26 Aug 2010 22:09:51 GMT

: What you're talking about is effectively promoting the spellcheck
: index to a first-class Solr index, instead of an appendage bolted on
: the side of an existing core. Given sharding and distributed search,
: this may be a better design.

even w/o promoting the spell index to be a "main" index, it still seems 
like the "rebuild" aspect of SpellCheck component could be improved to 
take advantage of regular Lucene IndexReader semanics: don't reopen the 
reader used to serve SpellComponent requests untill the "new" index is 
completley built.

I'm actaully really suprised that it doesn't work that way right now -- 
but i imagine this has to do with the way the SpellCheckCOmponent deals 
with the SpellChecker abstraction that hides the index -- still, it seems 
like there's room for improvement there.
