Subject Creating Lucence Compound Index
Date Tue, 02 Jan 2007 12:57:03 GMT
Currently Nutch creates a Lucene multifile index, and makes sure any
existing compound index is converted  to multifile by using the
IndexWriter.setUseCompoundFile(false) method.


This is done whenever an IndexWriter is opened in the following methods:





Is there a technical constraint as to why Nutch should ensure usage of
multifile (or prevent compound) and not allow the type to be set by a
property setting?


Does anyone object to/support  a patch to allow this to be configurable?


Best regards,



Alan Tanaman
