Big project for Tiki7 -> Unified Index

To be considered:

Zend_Search_Lucene versus MySQL

  • Advantage
    • can weight fields. Ex: a title over the content
    • can search on fields (ex: only on title). Probably can easily filter on language
    • English tokenization by default
    • Search globally on all the object types and not type by type.
  • Possible problems??
    • To have the good scoring, all the objects must be fetched (but less than 30secs for lucene to search over 4500 tiki files + 1500 wiki pages

(Some possibilites to speed up: http://forums.zend.com/viewtopic.php?f=69&t=741)

    • the index optimization must be run with a batch....

Related: Character substitutions


  • Need a way to detect a crash
