Title: BRINGING INFORMATION RETRIEVAL BACK TO DATABASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Authors: Dr. Khaled Nagi
Abstract:
Information retrieval emerged as independent research area from traditional
database management system more than a decade ago. This was driven by the
increasing functional requirements that modern full text search engines have to
meet. Current database management systems (DBMS) are not capable of
supporting such flexibility. However, with the increase of data to be indexed and
retrieved and the increasing heavy workloads, modern search engines suffer from
scalability, reliability, distribution and performance problems. The DBMS have a
long tradition in coping with these challenges. Instead of reinventing the wheel, we
propose using current DBMS as backend to existing full text search engines. This
way, we bring back both worlds together. We present a new and simple way for
integration and compare the performance of our system to the current
implementations based on storing the full text index directly on the file system.
