Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENENET-210) FSDirectory - DirectoryInfo vs. FileInfo
Date Mon, 09 Nov 2009 16:11:32 GMT


George Aroush commented on LUCENENET-210:

Now that I know which test this is trying to address, I want to study it further, but here
is some early comments.

I agree that the use of DirectoryInfo over FileInfo is more appropriate.  It's a tradeoff
between automation vs. manual port.  However, if we do so now, we are breaking any code that
depends on those methods (this includes the demo code which you need to supply a patch for
it too, otherwise this patch will break it).

My suggestion is we add new methods that take DirectoryInfo and depreciate those that take
FileInfo.  We can remove the depreciated methods with 3.0.

> From what I know of the Java File class, it can represent a file or a directory, whereas
in .NET the explicit classes FileInfo and DirectoryInfo would apply.  I've altered the usage
of the two different classes depending on what the purpose is, be it a directory or a file.
 This does change the interface to instantiation of classes such as IndexReader with a DirectoryInfo
object as opposed to a FileInfo object which is more precise and actually cleans up the internals
a bit.
