Automatic Sectioning

You can set up your indexing operation to automatically create sections from XML documents using the section group AUTO_SECTION_GROUP. The system creates zone sections for XML tags. Attribute sections are created for the tags that have attributes and these sections named in the form tag@attribute.

For example, the following statement creates the index myindex on a column containing the XML files using the AUTO_SECTION_GROUP:

ON xmldocs(xmlfile)
 INDEXTYPE IS ctxsys.context
PARAMETERS ('datastore ctxsys.default_datastore 
             filter ctxsys.null_filter 
             section group ctxsys.auto_section_group'
