Sorry this wasn't clearer. Let me re-summarize, and report on a new
- Greenstone allows for Lucene as one of the indexing plugins
- I took advantage of this for use in our PHP frontend, EmeraldView
- Greenstone includes a Java wrapper class for Lucene which indexes
documents as the collection is built
- This wrapper class indexes but does not store the document full text;
thus a search only returns document IDs of hits. This means that, in
order to place search terms in context, we have to load the actual
documents. I want the search API itself to return the surrounding text.
I was in fact able to hack the Java to include the full text in the
index. Just a matter of adding a line of code and an "if" statement,
once I'd been immersed in the code long enough. Trying to port it to
PHP (i.e. rewrite it) was instrumental in figuring out why in the world
the Greenstone indexing code is structured the way it is.
