I have some small isssue while developing desktop search application....when lucene struck while indexing some files because of out of memory or any other reason ..but when i restart again ..lucene tries to reindex again all the files.... is there anyway where i can instruct lucene to index only those files which are not indexed before...????
There may be some way to do it against a single index file, but then if it did crash, its prob best not even to try rescue the file.
The way I do it is say by generating a single index per directory or disk, or whatever, and then you dont have to wait for the machine to do the entire company type thing... the lucense can join index's with
Isnt lucene cool... a really nice tool.
