Subject RE: Lucene.Net project involvement
Date Tue, 27 Mar 2007 00:25:33 GMT
Hi, guys,
I want to reduce Lucene index deployed on our customers' desktops to as
small as possible (for patching purpose), and I find that the index size
shrinks by 75% if I zip it.  Can I have Lucene use this zipped index
(either directly or indirectly) to append to it, initiate a search, etc?

I saw a RAMDirectory class, but I don't see methods to add file streams
to it (say I use SharpZipLib to uncompress the zipped index).  Does
using RAMDirectory have any drawback?
