Subject [Lucene.Net] [jira] [Commented] (LUCENENET-443) SpellChecker finaliser calls close regardless of if closed already
Date Mon, 19 Sep 2011 05:46:09 GMT


michael herndon commented on LUCENENET-443:

Stuart, trunk was updated with typical MS style IDisposable pattern which replaced the this.Close()
in the finalizer. Calling Dispose() will check to see if the SpellChecker is still open before
calling Close() and suppress the finalizer.  

Leaving this open for a few days before resolving.

> The SpellChecker Class currently has no publicly visible way of accessing the closed
field. It also calls close in the finaliser killing the process it is in upon GC as this can
throw an exceptin. I propose two changes:
> Change the already existing method "IsClosed()" to public:
>         public bool IsClosed()
>         {
>             return closed;
>         }
> and add a check on this in the finaliser:
>         ~SpellChecker()
>         {
>             if (!IsClosed())
>                 this.Close();
>         }
> Ideally this class should implement IDisposable but I think this would be a bigger job
than this two line change.
