[Zope-dev] Use ZODB3 and ZCatalog for indexing purposes

2000-07-25 Thread Thomas Weholt

Hi,

I'm wondering about using ZODB3 and ZCatalog for a CD-indexing project. The
actual cd-roms will seldom change after they've been registered, and I'd
like to have some sort of auto-full-text-search feature.
How does ZODB3 and ZCatalog fit in this picture? I'm NOT making a
Zope-product yet, just a plain python-script, using ZODB/ZCatalog for
storage. Later, the thing will have a Zope-interface, but for now I'm having
so much trouble with my current implementation using PostgreSQL, mostly due
to the fact that I cannot get full-text-searching, that I really need some
progress now. I'm dealing with plain python objects the entire time, but
searching is alpha/omega in this case and will break it completly if not
implemented correctly.

Any hints, tips, flames or just emails sent out of boredome, I'm a lonely
coder who needs a stinkin' break before I go completly nuts, so any feedback
will be great. :-

Thomas

Thomas,

Have you seen the Zope on CDROM howto?

Try searching on zope.org (when it's back up that is) for it.

I don't think it's relevant actually.  WHat you do want is Jim Fulton's talk
about ZODB from IPC8 - search zope.org for that.

thomas,

putting together a zope python product to represent a CD isn't hard at
all. if you go the product route you'll be able to index and search
across all attributes of the CD object using ZCatalog.

check out the "boring product" at
http://www.zope.org/Members/gtk/Boring/HowTo-Boring, it is a good guide
to the framework making up a zope product.

You're definitely looking for this article.  It explains very clearly
how to access ZODB without the rest of the Zope framework.
