Solar-Talk Archives Now Searchable
Jul 18, 2006 @ 12:19:40

Solar fans can now rejoice (well, more than usual) - according to this post on Paul Jones' blog, the archives from the Solar-Talk mailing list have been made available by Rodrigo Moraes.

From Rodrido's post to the list:

The Solar-talk archives are now searchable: http://tipos.org/solartalk/

It is a very rudimentary mini-app using Solar & Zend_Search_Lucene for the indexing. Some features are still not implemented like pagination and exact phrase match. Messages will be indexed once a day via cron, starting from today at night. Currently it is indexed until last Friday, July 14.

Great to see a compination of the two frameworks working together as well - each has their strengths and examples of both are displayed here.

phpRiot.com:
Creating a fulltext search engine with the Zend Framework's Zend_Search_Lucene
Apr 27, 2006 @ 07:10:20

phpRiot has posted an interesting new tutorial today that uses a framework that's become quite popular lately - the Zend Framework - and how to use it's Zend_Search_Lucene module to create a fulltext search engine.

This article covers the implementation of a fulltext search engine using PHP 5 and the Zend Framework. We will be using the Zend_Search_Lucene component to create and search our fulltext index.

To demonstrate this functionality, we will cover the implementation of a search engine into phpRiot. We previously used the Tsearch2 module but had some problems that we were unable to overcome.

They begin by explaining how a fulltext search works, via a combination of the indexing and the querys made. From there, they dive right in, grabbing the latest copy of the Framework and showing (briefly) how to configure it. They then set up the structure of the index you'll need to make it all work, and give you the complete code to fill it with data. And, of course, a data store is no good without a way to query it, so they give a basic example of doing just that.

They cap it all off with code that creates a basic search engine, builing on all of the previous code from the article

Zend:
Roll Your Own Search Engine with Zend_Search_Lucene
Mar 30, 2006 @ 08:23:29

With the Zend Framework making such a splash in the PHP community, people can't seem to get enough tutorials and information surrounding it. So, in an effort to feed that need, Zend has published this new tutorial covering the Zend_Search_Lucene package.

One of the features that sets the Zend Framework apart from the others is the inclusion of a decent search module. Zend_Search_Lucene is a php port of the Apache Lucene project, a full-text search engine framework. Zend_Search_Lucene promises a simple way to add search functionality to an application without requiring additional php extensions or even a database.

Zend_Search_Lucene overcomes the usual limitations of relational databases with features such as fast indexing, ranked result sets, a powerful but simple query syntax, and the ability to index multiple fields. Better still, a Zend_Search_Lucene index can live happily alongside your relational database to provide fast searching but without duplicating the effort of storing all of your data twice. In this tutorial, I'll show you how to use Zend_Search_Lucene to index and search some RSS feeds.

Mostly due to the simplicity of Zend's Framework setup, the tutorial isn't too long. It looks at the creation of the index (with a sample of fetching RSS feeds) and how to use this index to search their contents. There's even an outline of what kind of data can be associated with what kinds of fields.
