Subject [OT] Realizing a search functionality
Date Thu, 04 Sep 2003 22:32:14 GMT
Hi, I must admit that I don't know anything about how to realize a search
functionality. The only thing that I know is that most sites have a search
functionality which, when searching for something, return a list of links
more or less involved in the search string.

The only things I know are:

1) An index of the web site contents should be created somehow
2) The search 'action' (I'm talking in Struts terms, but I think it could be
anything) should interact with this index to match the required string
3) A list (which form does it assume) containing all the links related to
the query string should be created, eventually read and displayed to the

Did anyone of you realized succesfully a search functionality in its site?
Could you please address me towards some good software (possibly
open-source, possibly Jakarta, possibly java-oriented) and  patterns to use
to realize  a search functionality?

Many thanks,
