I've been tasked with knocking up a public search interface
which is going to involve indexing around 2000 documents - word,pdf
etc - which have all had Author, keyword, category, comment etc
I have been able to alter the style files in the collection
so that I can get this metadata into the 000001.ddd file (I can see
it when I open this file in notepad), but have been unable to
actually access the fields using cfsearch.
The fields I need are basically author, create date and some
of the meta data - all of which I can get into the .ddd file when I
index the documents.
I understand that this is likely to involve modifying the
style.ufl (I think) file to define these fields but everything I've
tried has thus far failed (and I've tried a lot).
Firstly, am I flogging a dead horse or should this be
Secondly, does anyone know of any place that might have some
explanation as to the syntax of these files and the kind of thing I
need to do to expose this data to my CFsearch?
I'm not running verity K2 because the box this will run on
won't be either...
I have asked ADOBE support for Verity documentation regarding
the style files. They had no idea what I was talking about. I then
called www.Autonomy.com a UK based company that purchased Verity
which sold the verity tool to Macromedia OEM. Unless you purchased
Verity from them not Macromedia they will not give you access to
the documentation. Autonomy suggested opening a case file with
macromedia, which is where I purcased my verity from. Macromedia
coldfusion support costs $499 per case. A heafty price for
documention Macromedia should supply regardless. And based on my
hours and hours of searching Adobe/Macromedia docs, I believe they
don't have what we need.
My issue was to index the Subject property of a PDF and use
it as the Summary since the default Summary created by Verity was
not very descriptive. The person I spoke with at Autonomy said the
styles needing adjustment were .UFL and .UNI but would not
elaborate further unless I paid the $$$$.
