Hi Diogene, 2007/10/23, Diogene Laerce <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>: > Is it possible to download the bases.dmxp (xml format) from the server > and where ?
No. The bases.dmxp file contains sensitive information (who has voted on what) and is never going to be released to the public. > Purpose : The search engine would need to update its corpus > automatically (every day or week), and so will need to connect to the > base to download it all, parse the xml and build a new xml file it could > read (with the proper headers). Use the regular RPC API to get the update on each question. There is a timestamp mechanism to know if a question has been changed. Look at RPC get_timestamp() in the demexp book. In short, a timestamp, an integer counter, is incremented each time a question, tag, etc. is modified. You have the timestamp in the data structure of each question, tag, etc. Moreover, you can use the get_timestamp() RPC to get all the timestamps at once. As an added bonus, on the XML-RPC proxy, you have two RPCs available: * get_timestamp(), the same as the get_timestamp() ONC-RPC; * get_timestamp_decoded(), returns the timestamp as arrays of integers (instead of the compressed version of the get_timestamp() RPC). So, if you want to check at regular interval all the questions, you should: * Issue get_timestamp() (or get_timestamp_decoded()) to get all the timestamps. Compare the returned value with the value you stored. * For each question that has a different timestamp, issue a question_info() to update your local copy of the question.
