A Primer On Oracle Text
October 6, 2004
Mark Rittman

OTN: "Optimizing Your Text Retrieval" : "Oracle Text is included in both the Standard and Enterprise editions of Oracle9i Release 1 and Release 2 and Oracle 10g. Its functionality is a core component of iFS, Ultra Search, and XML DB.

What can you do with Oracle Text? Let's start with searching. Not basic SQL searching; I'm talking about full-text retrieval against virtually any datatype (including all LOB types). The indexing and searching abilities of Oracle Text are not restricted to data stored in the database. It can index and search documents stored on the file system and index more than 150 document types, including Microsoft Word, PDF, and XML.

Oracle Text search functionality includes fuzzy, stemming (search for mice and find mouse), wildcard, proximity, results ranking, and keyword highlighting. You can even add a thesaurus to make a search on widget and find documents that contain the word gadget."
