New Releases of Norconex Committers

UpgradeNorconex Committer and all is current concrete implementations (Solr, Elasticsearch, IDOL) have been upgraded and have seen a redesign of their web sites.  Committers are libraries responsible for posting data to various repositories (typically search engines).  They are in other products or projects, such as Norconex HTTP Collector.

Norconex Committer 1.2.0

Version 1.2.0 was just released along with a new website for it.  New features:

  • New MultiCommitter class allowing the use multiple committers.
  • New NilCommitter class swallowing the queuing and commit requests (i.e. doing nothing) but prints how many were “queued” or “committed”.
  • New configuration options for AbstractBatchCommitter and subclasses:
    • Max number of retries between commit failures
    • How long to wait between two attempts.
  • AbstractFileQueueCommitter and its subclasses now periodically delete empty directories under their queue directory. This can greatly reduce the directory scanning time when dealing with thousands/millions of files, improving performance.
