Subject Re: Full Text Support ?
Date Sun, 16 Jun 2002 18:50:42 GMT

I think there is an ongoing effort to add a full-text indexing feature to 
XIndice (you can search the archive of the dev ML for further details).

However, when I needed to implement a full-text search engine for an 
XIndice application, I used Apache Lucene,
I simply used XIndice to store the full document bodies, and Lucene to 
build, store and query the index for the texts, along with a special 
"field" (the term for Lucene entires' slots) for each document, specifying 
the document path into XIndice (collection and id). So now I can run a 
query using Lucene, obtainig a list of XIndice document ids.
