Integrating a Structured-Text Retrieval System with an Object-Oriented Database System
We describe the integration of a structuredtext retrieval system (TextMachine) into an object-oriented database system (OpenODB). We use the external function capability of the database system to encapsulate the text retrieval system as an external information source. Through query translation, we are able to provide a tight integration in the query language and processing; the user can access the text retrieval system using a standard database query language. The efficient and effective retrieval of structured text performed by the text retrieval system is combined with the rich modeling and general-purpose querying capabilities of the database system, resulting in an integrated system with querying power beyond those of the underlying systems. The integrated system also provides uniform access to textual data in the text retrieval system and structured data in the database system, thus allowing fusion of information.
