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

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Yeppur.  A large percentage of records for integrated 
systems have blobs and varchars in them.  And unfortunately, 
we have to mine those suckers because that is where 
the humans put the stuff that is most interesting to them. 
If we use XQuery and still have to use 'like' queries, 
we didn't get much in the bargain.

Computers aren't just calculators anymore.

I'd see structured and unstructured search as complementary  
capabilities rather than mutually exclusive.

Jason can probably tell you what their customers are looking for when  
they combine the two capabilities.
