BluePrint: Text Search

Introduction

The Blueprint outlines the development of two functionalities for Sahana Eden. They are:

Full-text Search

  • It will provides users to search for text in uploaded documents.

Global Search

  • It will provide users to search for text over multiple resources (eg. Organization, Hospital, etc.).

Stakeholders

  • The End Users

Agencies like:

  • TLDRMP : Timor Leste Disaster Risk Management Portal
  • CSN : Community Stakeholder Network
  • LAC: Los Angeles County
  • IFRC : International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies

User Stories

For Full-Text Search:

  • The user will have to go to Document module and Search option. Then he has to type the text(or the specified query format) to search in all the uploaded documents.
  • The result will be the name on the document, the link to the uploaded documents(specifying the authorization checks) and a line of text containing the search string.

Requirements

Functional

For Full Text:

  • Proper understanding and the work model of S3Search(depricated) and S3Filter is required.


  • Literature study of Apache Lucene and PyLucene.


  • Getting familiar with PyLucene and deploy it into my local machine.


  • Studying the linkage of the Lucene daemon and web2py server.


  • Extend the functionality of S3Filter by introducing an addition feature (which is a text field) to search for text through documents.


Non-functional

Standards

System Constraints

  • The user should have PyLucene installed in there machine.
  • Also, while starting the web2py server, the Lucence deamon should also start.
  • In case of failure, the search query related to full-text search will not be functional.
