Subject API Woes
Date Thu, 11 May 2017 03:36:42 GMT
I have updated Itamar's LuceneNetDemo to the new API (,
but there is an issue with its API usage I am not quite sure about.

In the original demo code, there is an HtmlStripAnalyzerWrapper class (
that returns the result of _wrappedAnalyzer.CreateComponents(). However, in Java CreateComponents()
was a protected method, so it has been updated to be protected in .NET. Therefore, this line
won't compile.

Since the purpose of the HtmlStripAnalyzerWrapper class is to apply a filter to the passed-in
analyzer, I tried another approach. The InitReader() method is apparently designed for this
specific purpose. So, I tried subclassing the StandardAnalyzer so I could override the InitReader()
method. But StandardAnalyzer is sealed (as it was in Java).

Is the StandardAnalyzer (or any other analyzer that is marked sealed) not intended to be used
in conjunction with a CharFilter? Or is there a loophole in Java that makes this somehow possible?

Of course, the workaround is to duplicate most of what StandardAnalyzer does (,
but it seems like there should be another option here. Is this what the Lucene designers intended?
