Some Oracle Secrets Revealed
November 16, 2012
We’ve found a resource for Oracle users at the Independent Oracle UCM Knowledge Center: “Secrets of the Full Text Search.” This clearly written and illustrated article explores the details of Oracle Content Server’s full text indexing. This might be one to peruse now, then tuck away for future reference. Writer Dmitri Khanine explains:
“Spend 15 min to understand exactly how Content Server’ Full Text search is working!
“This article takes you behind the scenes and shows you exactly how the full text indexing works in Oracle Content Server. If you ever tried to troubleshoot your search, indexer, batch loader or a performance issue – without a full understanding of how the things really work under the hood – I don’t have to tell you how much time this article can really save you. So without any further due – here it comes.”
And with that, Khanine dives into the technical details, walk-through style. Once you have your full text search enabled and options configured, he takes you through creating and working with a PDF.
I will share the one point Khanine saw fit to emphasize with a paragraph full of italics—since only the latest revision of any document is stored in the IdcColx tables, full text searches are only done on the latest released revision. See the article for more such technical tidbits.
