Text Analysis Within a Full-Text Search Engine

Full-Text Search refers to techniques for searching text content within a document or a collection of documents that hold textual content. A Full-Text search engine examines all the textual content within documents as it tries to match a single search term or several terms, text analysis being a pivotal component.

You’ve probably heard of the most well-known Full-Text Search engine: Lucene with Elasticsearch built on top of it. Couchbase’s Full-Text Search (FTS) Engine is powered by Bleve, and this article will showcase the various ways to analyze text within this engine.

Bleve is an open-sourced text indexing and search library implemented in Go, developed in-house at Couchbase.

Couchbase’s FTS engine supports indexes that subscribe to data residing within a Couchbase Server and indexes data that it ingests from the server. It’s a distributed system – meaning it can partition data across multiple nodes in a cluster and searches involve scattering the request and gathering responses from across all nodes within the cluster before responding to the application.

The FTS engine distributes documents ingested for an index across a configurable number of partitions and these partitions could reside across multiple nodes within a cluster. Each partition follows the same set of rules that the FTS index is configured with – to analyze and index text into the full-text search database.

The text analysis component of a Full-Text search engine is responsible for breaking down the raw text into a list of words – which we’ll refer to as tokens. These tokens are more suitable for indexing in the database and searching.

Couchbase’s FTS Engine handles text indexing for JSON documents. It builds an index for the content that is analyzed and stores into the database – the index along with all the relevant metadata needed to link the tokens generated to the original documents within which they reside.

An Inverted index is the data structure chosen to index the tokens generated from text, to make search queries faster. This index links every token generated to documents that contain the token.

For example, take the following documents …

The inverted index for the tokens generated from the 2 documents above would resemble this…

Here’s a diagram highlighting the components of the full-text search engine …

A Text Analyzer

The components of a text analyzer can broadly be classified into 2 categories:

  • Tokenizer
  • Filters

Couchbase’s engine further categorizes filters into:

  • Character filters
  • Token filters

Before we dive into the function of each of these components, here’s an overview of a text analyzer …

Tokenizer

A tokenizer is the first component to which the documents are subjected to. As the name suggests, it breaks the raw text into a list of tokens. This conversion will depend on a rule-set defined for the tokenizer.

Stock tokenizers…

Take this sample text for an example: “_this is my email ID: _abhi123@cb.com

A couple of configurable tokenizers…

  • Exception … This tokenizer allows the user to enter exception patterns (regular expressions) over the stock tokenizers.
  • Regexp … This tokenizer extracts text that matches the pattern (a regular expression) as tokens.

For example:

#json #couchbase #search #go #text analysis #full-text search #bleve #full-text #full-text-indexing

Basic and Full-text Search with Django and Postgres

Unlike relational databases, full-text search is not standardized. There are a number of open-source options like ElasticSearch, Solr, and Xapian. ElasticSearch is probably the most popular solution; however, it’s complicated to set up and maintain. Further, if you’re not taking advantage of some of the advanced features that ElasticSearch offers, you should stick with the full-text search capabilities that many relational (like Postgres, MySQL, SQLite) and non-relational databases (like MongoDB and CouchDB) offer. Postgres in particular is well-suited for full-text search. Django supports it out-of-the-box as well.

For the vast majority of your Django apps, you should, at the very least, start out with leveraging full-text search from Postgres before looking to a more powerful solution like ElasticSearch or Solr.

In this article, we’ll add basic and full-text search to a Django app with Postgres.

Objectives

By the end of this article, you should be able to:

  1. Set up basic search functionality in a Django app with the Q object
  2. Add full-text search to a Django app
  3. Sort full-text search results by relevance using stemming, ranking, and weighting

Implement a full text search using Azure Cognitive Search in ASP.NET Core

This article shows how to implement a full text search in ASP.NET Core using Azure Cognitive Search. The search results are returned using paging and the search index can be created, deleted from an ASP.NET Core Razor Page UI.

Code: https://github.com/damienbod/AspNetCoreAzureSearch

Creating the Search in the Azure Portal

In the Azure Portal, search for Azure Cognitive Search and create a new search service. Create the search using the portal wizard and choose the correct pricing model as required. The free version supports three indexes but does not support managed identities. This is good for exploring, evaluating the service.

If using the free version, you will need to use API keys to access the search service. This can be found in the **Keys **blade of the created cognitive search.

Of course the Azure Cognitive Search could also be created using Azure CLI, Arm templates or Powershell. The service can also be created direct from code.

Create an Azure Cognitive Search index

In the ASP.NET Core Razor page application, the Azure.Search.Documents nuget package is used to create and search the Azure Cognitive search service. Add this to your project.

The index and the document field definitions can be created in different ways. We will use attributes and add these to the document search class properties to define the fields of the documents.
