Hi All ,

We have a database that consists of approx 40,000 records, and we are suppose to write a search method for it.The searching technique includes finding data on suffixes, prefixes, and in between character combinations e.g. we have data


and now if we have to conduct search on keyword 'fen' then it should return all the three records mentioned above in a

fenvia // like 'fen*'
nerufen // like '*fen'
asfenas // like '*fen*' minus all above records
(to avoid repetition)

how we can speed up our search technique for such a bulk of data.i.e. 40,000 entries(approx)

Thanks in advance
Naveen Kumar

Create an Oracle Text index (INDEXTYPE IS ctxsys.context) and SELECT the data using CONTAINS in the WHERE clause.

See the Oracle Text Reference Guide for details.

If you have more questions, post them on the Oracle Text forum.

Best regards.
