Subject Re: Functionality to store indexes in database with jackrabbit 2.1.2 or upcoming releases.........

Great discussion! I've recently started looking at ways to implement the 
"search collection" stuff Alex referred to, and it would be great if 
this discussion could end up helping design such an implementation. We 
should move to dev@ for the details.

By the spec the above query could just as well be implemented by a tree 
traversal, just like the SQL standard makes no demands on where and how 
RDBMs uses indexes.

What I'd like to see is an equivalent of the CREATE INDEX statement that 
could be used to add JCR indexes that selectively boost the performance 
of the kinds of searches that a specific deployment is relying on.

PS. Regarding index-in-JCR, nowadays with a file-based data store a 
Lucene search index stored and accessed as JCR nodes and properties 
should be pretty efficient...
