Subject [Lucene.Net] [jira] [Created] (LUCENENET-467) .NETify the public API where appropriate
Date Tue, 24 Jan 2012 06:07:40 GMT
.NETify the public API where appropriate

                 Key: LUCENENET-467
             Project: Lucene.Net
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Lucene.Net Contrib, Lucene.Net Core
    Affects Versions: Lucene.Net 2.9.4, Lucene.Net 2.9.2, Lucene.Net 3.0.3, Lucene.Net 2.9.4g
         Environment: all
            Reporter: Christopher Currens
             Fix For: Lucene.Net 3.0.3

Although we haven't abandoned the line-by-line port of Java lucene, there are many idioms
in Java that make little to no sense in a .NET assembly.  The API can change to allow for
a conventional .NET experience, while still maintaining the ability and ease during the porting
process of Java logic.

* Change Getxxx() and Setxxx() methods to .NET Properties
* Implement the [dispose pattern|] properly.
 Try, at all costs, to only use finalizers *when necessary*.  They are expensive, and most
of the classes used already have finalizers that will be called.
* Convert Java Iterator-style classes (see TermEnum, TermDocs and others) to implement IEnumerable<T>
* When catching exceptions, do not use *throw;* instead of *throw ex;* to maintain the stack
