In Java, editing a custom field fails to update indexes?

Basically, I need a query to produce a list of issues where custom field 'X' is empty. But just before I query for these issues, I have some java code that edits custom field 'X'.

My problem is only after re-indexing does the query produce the desired resutls. I suspect that my java code is failing to update an index that later influences the query?

public static void editCustomField(Issue sourceIssue, String customField, String value){
		CustomField cf = getCustomField(customField);
		IssueChangeHolder changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder();
		Object oldValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue(cf);
		ModifiedValue mod = new ModifiedValue(oldValue, value);
		cf.updateValue(null, issue, mod, changeHolder);

Please help :(
