Subject Re: Multiple Indexes - Merge?

Well.. the short answer is "yes" you can merge indexes ... the 
IndexReader.addIndexes method will do this for you.  In general though, 
your problem statement doesn't seem to really relate to Lucene, or require 
merging of indexes ...if your app encounters a problem unrelated to 
luncene (ie: a network problem) and closes the index cleanly, then when 
the problem goes away your app can open an IndexWriter on the index and 
start right back up where it left off.
