Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENENET-469) Convert Java Iterator classes to implement IEnumerable<T>
Date Wed, 09 Aug 2017 15:21:00 GMT


Andy Pook commented on LUCENENET-469:

Yeah, well, I thought, that's looks like it might be isolated, small. Ha!
I'll poke at it some more, see what turns up. But I may just punt and look for something else

I'm not sure I'm on the same wave length just yet...

"how does that apply to TermsEnum? Disposing a superclass is not quite the same thing"
But the enumerator is not a super class. It's a "child" of the TermsEnum (or whatever) created
for a purpose. Disposing the child shouldn't dispose the "parent". I'm fairly sure that IEnumerator
has Dispose so that things like listing files (managed resource) can be cleaned up. But still,
it's about cleaning up resources used by the enumerator _not_ by the parent collection type.
If you want to Dispose the collection type then that's a separate operation. There may be
other behaviors available, appropriate on the collection type _after_ you've looped some aspect
of it.
Right ??

Also a bit confused around the "extras" topic. I don't see the problem. We'd get all the linq
bits for free. You're right, they are generally defined on {{IEnumerable<T>}} But that's
fine. In your example of {{TermsEnum}} being {{IEnumerable<BytesRef>}} then regardless
of how the enumerator is factored you can still do {{foreach(var item in termsEnum.Where(b=>b.Length>100)){}}}

> The Iterator pattern in Java is equivalent to IEnumerable in .NET.  Classes that were
directly ported in Java using the Iterator pattern, cannot be used with Linq or foreach blocks
in .NET.
> {{Next()}} would be equivalent to .NET's {{MoveNext()}}, and in the below case, {{Term()}}
would be as .NET's {{Current}} property.  In cases as below, it will require {{TermEnum}}
to become an abstract class with {{Term}} and {{DocFreq}} properties, which would be returned
from another class or method that implemented {{IEnumerable<TermEnum>}}.

> 		public abstract Term Term();
> 		public abstract int DocFreq();

> 	        public abstract void Dispose();

> {noformat} 
> would instead look something like:
> {noformat} 
> 	public class TermFreq
> 	{
> 		public abstract Term { get; }
> 		public abstract int { get; }
> 	}
>         public abstract class TermEnum : IEnumerable<TermFreq>, IDisposable
>         {
>                 // ...
>         }
> {noformat}
> Keep in mind that it is important that if the class being converted implements {{IDisposable}},
the class that is enumerating the terms (in this case {{TermEnum}}) should inherit from both
{{IEnumerable<T>}} *and* {{IDisposable}}.  This won't be any change to the user, as
the compiler automatically calls {{IDisposable}} when used in a {{foreach}} loop.
