Class DirectoryTaxonomyWriter

    • Field Detail


        public static final java.lang.String INDEX_EPOCH
        Property name of user commit data that contains the index epoch. The epoch changes whenever the taxonomy is recreated (i.e. opened with IndexWriterConfig.OpenMode.CREATE.

        Applications should not use this property in their commit data because it will be overridden by this taxonomy writer.

      • DirectoryTaxonomyWriter

        public DirectoryTaxonomyWriter​(Directory directory,
                                       IndexWriterConfig.OpenMode openMode,
                                       TaxonomyWriterCache cache)
        Construct a Taxonomy writer.
        directory - The Directory in which to store the taxonomy. Note that the taxonomy is written directly to that directory (not to a subdirectory of it).
        openMode - Specifies how to open a taxonomy for writing: APPEND means open an existing index for append (failing if the index does not yet exist). CREATE means create a new index (first deleting the old one if it already existed). APPEND_OR_CREATE appends to an existing index if there is one, otherwise it creates a new index.
        cache - A TaxonomyWriterCache implementation which determines the in-memory caching policy. See for example LruTaxonomyWriterCache and Cl2oTaxonomyWriterCache. If null or missing, defaultTaxonomyWriterCache() is used.
        CorruptIndexException - if the taxonomy is corrupted.
        LockObtainFailedException - if the taxonomy is locked by another writer. If it is known that no other concurrent writer is active, the lock might have been left around by an old dead process, and should be removed using unlock(Directory). - if another error occurred.
      • DirectoryTaxonomyWriter

        public DirectoryTaxonomyWriter​(Directory d)
        Create this with OpenMode.CREATE_OR_APPEND.
    • Method Detail

      • unlock

        public static void unlock​(Directory directory)
        Forcibly unlocks the taxonomy in the named directory.

        Caution: this should only be used by failure recovery code, when it is known that no other process nor thread is in fact currently accessing this taxonomy.

        This method is unnecessary if your Directory uses a NativeFSLockFactory instead of the default SimpleFSLockFactory. When the "native" lock is used, a lock does not stay behind forever when the process using it dies.

      • defaultTaxonomyWriterCache

        public static TaxonomyWriterCache defaultTaxonomyWriterCache()
        Defines the default TaxonomyWriterCache to use in constructors which do not specify one.

        The current default is Cl2oTaxonomyWriterCache constructed with the parameters (1024, 0.15f, 3), i.e., the entire taxonomy is cached in memory while building it.

      • close

        public void close()
        Frees used resources as well as closes the underlying IndexWriter, which commits whatever changes made to it to the underlying Directory.

      • addCategory

        public int addCategory​(FacetLabel categoryPath)
        Description copied from interface: TaxonomyWriter
        addCategory() adds a category with a given path name to the taxonomy, and returns its ordinal. If the category was already present in the taxonomy, its existing ordinal is returned.

        Before adding a category, addCategory() makes sure that all its ancestor categories exist in the taxonomy as well. As result, the ordinal of a category is guaranteed to be smaller then the ordinal of any of its descendants.

        addCategory in interface TaxonomyWriter
      • commit

        public void commit()
        Description copied from interface: TwoPhaseCommit
        The second phase of a 2-phase commit. Implementations should ideally do very little work in this method (following TwoPhaseCommit.prepareCommit(), and after it returns, the caller can assume that the changes were successfully committed to the underlying storage.

        commit in interface TwoPhaseCommit
      • setCommitData

        public void setCommitData​(java.util.Map<java.lang.String,​java.lang.String> commitUserData)
        Description copied from interface: TaxonomyWriter
        Sets the commit user data map. That method is considered a transaction and will be committed even if no other changes were made to the writer instance.

        NOTE: the map is cloned internally, therefore altering the map's contents after calling this method has no effect.

        Specified by:
        setCommitData in interface TaxonomyWriter
      • getSize

        public int getSize()
        Description copied from interface: TaxonomyWriter
        getSize() returns the number of categories in the taxonomy.

        Because categories are numbered consecutively starting with 0, it means the taxonomy contains ordinals 0 through getSize()-1.

        Note that the number returned by getSize() is often slightly higher than the number of categories inserted into the taxonomy; This is because when a category is added to the taxonomy, its ancestors are also added automatically (including the root, which always get ordinal 0).

        Specified by:
        getSize in interface TaxonomyWriter
      • setCacheMissesUntilFill

        public void setCacheMissesUntilFill​(int i)
        Set the number of cache misses before an attempt is made to read the entire taxonomy into the in-memory cache.

        This taxonomy writer holds an in-memory cache of recently seen categories to speed up operation. On each cache-miss, the on-disk index needs to be consulted. When an existing taxonomy is opened, a lot of slow disk reads like that are needed until the cache is filled, so it is more efficient to read the entire taxonomy into memory at once. We do this complete read after a certain number (defined by this method) of cache misses.

        If the number is set to 0, the entire taxonomy is read into the cache on first use, without fetching individual categories first.

        NOTE: it is assumed that this method is called immediately after the taxonomy writer has been created.

      • getParent

        public int getParent​(int ordinal)
        Description copied from interface: TaxonomyWriter
        getParent() returns the ordinal of the parent category of the category with the given ordinal.

        When a category is specified as a path name, finding the path of its parent is as trivial as dropping the last component of the path. getParent() is functionally equivalent to calling getPath() on the given ordinal, dropping the last component of the path, and then calling getOrdinal() to get an ordinal back.

        If the given ordinal is the ROOT_ORDINAL, an INVALID_ORDINAL is returned. If the given ordinal is a top-level category, the ROOT_ORDINAL is returned. If an invalid ordinal is given (negative or beyond the last available ordinal), an ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException is thrown. However, it is expected that getParent will only be called for ordinals which are already known to be in the taxonomy. TODO (Facet): instead of a getParent(ordinal) method, consider having a

        getCategory(categorypath, prefixlen) which is similar to addCategory except it doesn't add new categories; This method can be used to get the ordinals of all prefixes of the given category, and it can use exactly the same code and cache used by addCategory() so it means less code.

      • addTaxonomy

        public void addTaxonomy​(Directory taxoDir,
                                DirectoryTaxonomyWriter.OrdinalMap map)
        Takes the categories from the given taxonomy directory, and adds the missing ones to this taxonomy. Additionally, it fills the given DirectoryTaxonomyWriter.OrdinalMap with a mapping from the original ordinal to the new ordinal.
      • rollback

        public void rollback()
        Rollback changes to the taxonomy writer and closes the instance. Following this method the instance becomes unusable (calling any of its API methods will yield an AlreadyClosedException).
        Specified by:
        rollback in interface TwoPhaseCommit
      • replaceTaxonomy

        public void replaceTaxonomy​(Directory taxoDir)
        Replaces the current taxonomy with the given one. This method should generally be called in conjunction with IndexWriter.addIndexes(Directory...) to replace both the taxonomy as well as the search index content.
      • getDirectory

        public Directory getDirectory()
        Returns the Directory of this taxonomy writer.
      • getTaxonomyEpoch

        public final long getTaxonomyEpoch()
        Expert: returns current index epoch, if this is a near-real-time reader. Used by DirectoryTaxonomyReader to support NRT.
