> Hello there,
> I have a collection of documents that I am using lucene to build an index for, and then
I have a jsp app to search my documents. This all works great. I believe lucene is such an
amazing product, but thats a whole other topic. Anyway, maybe it's my lack of experience in
building indexes, but I am have trouble coming up with an index that kind of mimics verity's
parametric index.  You see my documents all have a category path (I have over 50,000 docs).
 A document can be at any level of the category path, and that same path can have many different
documents. IE. Document x, has a category path USA//New Jersey//Trenton//09890 and Document
y has a category path USA//New Jersey//Trenton//09890.  
> Basically, I would like to build an index using lucene, where when I search, if my results
were to bring back those two documents, I would like to retrieve the distinct category path
for those two documents.  Of course I can loop through and build a vector with only the unique
paths that come in the search results, but that obviously would take to long when I get lets
say 10000 results from my search.
> So the question I guess is, how can I build an index that would facilitate this functionality
for me.  If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.
> Thanks,
> Mark
