Re: indexing and querying XML (not XQuery)
This is getting off-topic from what I originally hoped for :) I was trying to start a conversation about using an XML indexing system in a particular problem domain - not something as grand as what you and Alan are are talking about. To me using something like Lucene provides for a much faster and much less memory consuming process to search large collections of XML documents or relational databases (whether they are story XML or not). best, -Rob Bullard, Claude L (Len) wrote: > IF it is really a full-text indexing system, > it scans and infers topics the same way a human > scans and tags.
