   * Set the prefix in use for all locks created in this
   * LockFactory.  This is normally called once, when a
   * Directory gets this LockFactory instance.  However, you
   * can also call this (after this instance is assigned to
   * a Directory) to override the prefix in use.  This
   * is helpful if you're running Lucene on machines that
   * have different mount points for the same shared
   * directory.
  public void setLockPrefix(String lockPrefix) {
    this.lockPrefix = lockPrefix;

   * Get the prefix in use for all locks created in this LockFactory.
  public String getLockPrefix() {
    return this.lockPrefix;

   * Return a new Lock instance identified by lockName.
   * @param lockName name of the lock to be created.
  public abstract Lock makeLock(String lockName);

   * Attempt to clear (forcefully unlock and remove) the
   * specified lock.  Only call this at a time when you are
   * certain this lock is no longer in use.
   * @param lockName name of the lock to be cleared.
