Hi, I'm trying to develop a class to handle an XML document, where the contents aren't so much indexed on a per-document basis, rather on an element basis. Each element has a unique ID, so I'm looking to create a class/method similar to Lucene's Document.Document(). By way of example, I'll use some XHTML markup to illustrate what I'm trying to do: [...]

some text to index...

some more text to index...

even more text to index...

I'd very much appreciate any help in explaining how I'd go about creating a method to return a Lucene Document to index this via ID. Would I want a separate Document per

? (There are many thousands of such elements.) Everything in my system, both at the document and the individual element level is done via URL, so the method should create URLs for each

element like http://purl.org/ceryle/blat.xml#p1 http://purl.org/ceryle/blat.xml#p2 http://purl.org/ceryle/blat.xml#p3 etc. I don't need anyone to go to the trouble of coding this, just point me to how it might be done, or to any existing examples that do this kind of thing. Thanks very much! Murray ......................................................................

Stannard, San Francisco Chronicle http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/c/a/2004/11/06/MNGHL9NBU11.DTL "We have a growing, maturing insurgency group. We see larger and more coordinated military attacks. They are getting better and they can self-regenerate. The idea there are x number of insurgents, and that when they're all dead we can get out is wrong. The insurgency has shown an ability to regenerate itself because there are people willing to fill the ranks of those who are killed. The political culture is more hostile to the US presence. The longer we stay, the more they are confirmed in that view." -- W Andrew Terrill Far Graver Than Vietnam, Sidney Blumenthal, The Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/comment/story/0,,1305360,00.html --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe, e-mail: lucene-dev-unsubscribe@jakarta.apache.org For additional commands, e-mail: lucene-dev-help@jakarta.apache.org
