we configured FAST JDBC Connector with Oracle database for crawling/indexing, as far as I know that JDBC connector doesnt support documents (like PDF, Word, Excel). We have another system using this Oracle DB and store items, and we may have multiple docs in one item and now need to crawl/index in FAST.

We create a python script to do that and using getPath and into Data property, however we can only get one document not all docs. How to write the python stage in order to support it?

Thank you.

I would create a custom bcs connector handling that - what you are trying to do is definitely possible. See this example as a starter: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ff625800(v=office.14).aspx

  • Thanks Max! BCS is not a option here since we are not using SharePoint 2010 just FAST Search as Enterprise Search Center. I am not good at coding so want to know how this method done. Thank you.
