Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENENET-588) Create unified CLI tool to wrap all Lucene maintenance tools and demos for .NET
Date Fri, 07 Jul 2017 10:38:00 GMT
Shad Storhaug created LUCENENET-588:

             Summary: Create unified CLI tool to wrap all Lucene maintenance tools and demos
for .NET
                 Key: LUCENENET-588
             Project: Lucene.Net
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Lucene.Net Core, Lucene.Net.Analysis.ICU, Lucene.Net.Analysis.Kuromoji,
Lucene.Net.Analysis.Stempel, Lucene.Net.Benchmark, Lucene.Net.Facet, Lucene.Net.Misc
    Affects Versions: Lucene.Net 4.8.0
            Reporter: Shad Storhaug
            Assignee: Shad Storhaug
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: Lucene.Net 4.8.0

Since it is not possible to run a .NET Standard DLL as a console application, we need to wrap
Lucene's CLI utilities with a .NET Console application in order to make them readily usable.
Many of these tools are important to have on hand, especially the index maintenance tools
to upgrade, inspect, fix, split, merge, copy or delete segments, etc of indexes.

There are many tools and they have inconsistent usage in Java. So, it makes more sense for
us to have a single unified CLI utility (like Microsoft's dotnet.exe tool) rather than make
a wrapper console application for each one. This also affords us the opportunity to make the
various parameters work consistently across tools.

This project is already nearing completion - this task is just being created to tie all of
the CLI-related issues together so efforts are not duplicated on those individual tasks.
