   Re: [xml-dev] indexing and querying XML (not XQuery)

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

A starting point may be MemoryIndex (http://dsd.lbl.gov/nux/api/ 
index.html), which can be used for Lucene fulltext search over  
comparatively small *transient main memory* XML documents, for  
example as in Nux XQuery. Note, however, that it is not  
straightforward to extend XML fulltext quering over transient main  
memory to XML fulltext quering over huge persistent XML document  
collections; the underlying technology is bound to be vastly  
different wrt. data management, indexing and transactional  
properties, though the high level search API may indeed remain  
indentical or similar.
