Inspired by these questions on the Search forum and stackoverflow I decided
to blog about different solutions for the problem using only the tools available in Search right now (4.1.1.Final). But let's start with the problem.
A bugfix release for Hibernate Search 4.1 ! Some of you have been reporting reduced performance after migrating from 3.4 or 4.0, which was not expected at all as the internals got smarter at each release. It turns out there was a quite critical bug: file handle leaks.
