Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENENET-8) Throwing an exception as a result of a normal situation is extremely bad in .net
Date Tue, 10 Oct 2006 02:04:25 GMT

George Aroush commented on LUCENENET-8:
---------------------------------------

Hi folks,

I have submitted this issue as a question to the Java Lucene folks (you can see the email
thread about it here: http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/lucene-java-dev/200610.mbox/date
(scan for FastCharStream.refill as the email subject.)

It turned out that this is an issue for Java Lucene as well and it has been fixed for 2.0.1
(see: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-388)

Given that Java Lucene 2.0.1 is not officially released, and that I am still trying to get
Lucene.Net 2.0 out, I will hold off doing any work on this issue.

I would add, once 2.0.1 is officially released, this change will be part of Lucene.Net 2.0.1,
automatically.

Thanks.

critical error.

> If this is the case, then the code is horrible. Throwing an exception in .NET is extremely
slow, and should never be thrown as a result of a normal situation. I repeat: "extremely slow"
