Subject RE: Indexing in a CBD Environment
Date Wed, 11 Dec 2002 14:21:33 GMT
petite_abeille, please enlighten me.  We will be using Oracle 9i.  Another
project using a similar architecture is coming up with a design for a
'Search Component'.  The reason they are looking into an indexing scheme is
to speed up search response time where we will have data distributed, across
databases on separate boxes, related via the associative tables I talked

Is there a better way to provide an acceptable searching mechanism using the
relational database engine?

Yep. The basic approach ZOE takes is to create one index per class and 
index the primary and foreigns key as keywords. It then query the 
different indexes to simulate a "relational" storage... Which is all 
handy, dandy... On the other hand, if you already have a relational 
database in the first place, there is no reason to go through this 
circus in the first place...

If you are so inclined, you can check the package for 
more gory details. In particular, SZIndex deals with Lucene directly.

You can find the app and its source here:
