Documentum xPlore provides an integrated Search facility for the Documentum Content Server. The standalone search engine is based on EMC's xDB (Native XML database) and Lucene. In this talk we will introduce xPlore and some of its key components and capabilities. These include aspects of a tight integration of Lucene with the XML database: xQuery translation and optimization into Lucene query/API's as well as transactional update Lucene). In addition, xPlore is being deployed aggressively into virtualized environments (both disk I/O and VM). We cover some performance results and tuning tips in these areas.
