How does the search engine work?

Monday 14 July 2003 6:34:56 pm - 2 replies


I'm developing an improvement for eZ. The objective is to add a semantic search option.

I´ve been studing the basics for eZ and I couldn't find a detailed explanation about the serach engine.

I need this to decide if I do this semantic search as a plug-in or a completly new feature.

Any documentation you can provide me will be great!

There is not much documentation about the search engine framework. But the search engine will index all objects which are searchable.
You will find the implementation in the folder:

What excactly are you looking for? I will try to get the documentation updated here as soon as possible.

I'm looking for the way that eZ indexes and retrieves information that is inserted into the DB.

How do eZ select the appropiate terms to set them as a search key and so on.
