On indexing of XML using XSLT

Back in July last year, I promised that I should return to how xslt extensions could be used to index arbitrary XML documents.

xslt_indexer is a JAVA application that I wrote a few years ago. It is used in some applications, such as the Guaman Poma Web Site.

The search engine is Apache Lucene, and the indexing engine is based on Xalan Java. The principle is that you use xslt to create and save lucene documents, and you can use xslt constructs to insert text into arbitrary fields in the lucene documents.

Beware though that this is work in progress, although the rate of progress is very low. I've put it online mostly for the purpose of publishing the idea. The error handling is virtually absent.

On this site there is material on photography, music, literature and other stuff I enjoy in life. However, most of it is related to my profession as an Internet programmer and software developer within the area of digital libraries. I have been that at the Royal Danish Library, Copenhagen (Denmark) and, before that, Lund university library (Sweden).
