faceted search support?

Paul Fitchett
Hi,
Does anyone know if dotCMS has support for faceted search, or if there is going to be a plugin providing it? By faceted search I mean a metadata search similar to what ebay has for refining a search. Here's a wikipedia reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faceted_search

As dotCMS has lucene in there under the hood I would imagine such a thing could be built on top of it.

Cheers,
Paul

I know at least a couple people have began looking at integrating Solr into dotCMS as an alternative to the less useful Spindle search. Check it out: http://lucene.apache.org/solr/

With our content structures and lucene, it is pretty easy to create faceted
searches for specific content within the dotCMS system.  Our Ajax calendar
of events is one small example of how you can drill down with facets.
 Another example of faceted search was created by the team at University of
Akron for their library research tools:

Hi,
Thanks for the quick replies guys! Solr is what I thought would be the way to go, but I was concerned that it would insist that lucene be structured in a certain way that would conflict with what dotCMS does. I'll have to look into it more closely.
Cheers,
Paul
