Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Need help with Site-wide-search and search packages

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
Ben, oh the various search packages for both PostgreSQL and Oracle seem to work, the open question is how well they each actually work in practice, and what should be done to make them work better.

Btw, I ran the ACS 4.2 Oracle site-wide-search package on a small site for quite a while, and noticed and band-aided various random problems. At some point it just stopped working at all and even though I tried briefly, I never did figure out why. But by then requirements and priorities had changed somewhat and we didn't really need to get it working, so we never did. Perhaps these problems were ultimately due to the flaws Dirk touches on above...
