Subject permission control or category-wise search with Lucene
Date Tue, 30 Aug 2005 04:47:24 GMT

My site has large database of Television and Movie titles, in English, 
Spanish language. The movie data starts from year 1928 till date for 
selected studios like MGM, Disney etc . The site user should be capable to 
search movie or tv series by title, description, actors or characters. The 
site-admin may provide some meta-data like actors, media-type for image 
assets in stills, logos section for each title. The user will be permitted 
to view features by specific category based on permissions. i.e if the user 
doe not have permission for 'james bond' category, then the search should 
not display any titles belonging to that category.
--how to use lucene with such access control ? what api's can be used ? 
--the DB may have some in-active titles, how can I not index in-active 
titles and be sure that they are not shown in search results ?
--other than providing meta-data for image files, is there anyother way 
lucene can search image assets ?
--the description or synopsis of movie title will be stored in Html format, 
is there any need to parse and store only the text ?
--how to show search results based on the zone or category chosen ? i.e show 
results of news article first and then features and then television grouped?
