Posted by Ciaran De Buitlear on
Hi starting a new project - thread here - some of the functionality might be related to this thread.  Very early stages but I am thinking about using the "knowledge base" in Oracle text (formerly known as intermedia) or at least part of it as a hierarchy of categories.  This knowledge base is stored in a tree like structure (otherwise known as a taxonomy).  Content can be "automatically" placed in a number of categories through a special type of search.  I am also looking at  letting users browse or search the taxonomy itself and to update it.  There is also the concept of searching for content based on the "theme" which I am looking at.  Anyway more later...
