I tried to create a new Indexed Table as per page 31 on how to do index driven search.
However the 'Upload Folder' text box in the form which populates the path automatically based on the input in Table Name textbox shows a unix based path and not a windows based path.
Index Name: TEST_TABLE_IDX
Is there a pattern to the windows path I can type in the Upload Folder path that will work?
It doesn't matter... That's the target folder in the XML DB repository. If you want to copy content in using Explorer you'll need to use the add network place wizard to create a short cut to that location
So when I click Go why does nothing happen? Also how can I add network place wizard?
I was using Chrome.
I switched to IE and got a popup asking for XML db server id and password when I click Go. It also says the server is requesting that your credentials be send in an insecure manner(basic authentication without a secure connection)
what id and pwd should i use for XML db?
XFILESIII only support IE
User name and password is any DB user. Eg SCOTT/tiger assuming you can log into the db via sqlpus as scott tiger
Add a Network Place is a Windows function
In Windows XP Go My Nework Places and Under Network Tasks in Explorer Bar pane on the left hand side you see an option "add a network place". Click this to launch the add nework palces wizard
I am not sure if Mark' solution is the fastest (will check / if I can avoid some extra clicks then this would be nice); I do it as follows:
- open windows explorer - click in the menu "Tools" - click option "Map Network Drive" - click this strange and probably never used "URL": "Sign up for online storage or connect to a network server" - click next - click next - enter your URL eg. http://localhost:8080 - enter username/password combination of a database user you want to use - finish
As Mark mentioned you will see an new entry afterwards in your windows explorer tree under "My Network Places"
Als see the XMLDB Development Guide regarding this topic: http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/appdev.112/e10492/xdb16fol.htm#i1042688
Strangely I am having issues adding a network place location of http://localhost:8080
When I enter the address and click next I get a message ' The folder you entered does not appear to be valid. Please choose another'. Not sure how to proceed further there.
I just realized that I needed to 'login' to see created xml index. I logged in and saw the test_table index I created but it shows up under global indexes and not local indexes as shown on page 32 of the documentation. When I clicked on the table or index name the upload files button is disabled.
Not sure how to test the xml search without uploading an xml document.

Also, when I click on the table name or index name link I again get prompted for XDB id and password(even though I am already logged in).
Strangely when I type the same id and password again(the one I logged in as) it does not seem to work and after the 3rd try I get to the XML Index Data Guide screen with all the fields like Table Owner, Table Name etc all disabled.
Not sure how to proceed further.
I don't know how much of these issues I am facing are related to Windows 7 but it seems like they may be. Is it worth trying this in XP Pro?
Would have liked to help, but at current I don't have any environment to play with, for example, to do a quick install of XFiles III and I don't know the application by hart to have a clue what you are trying to explain. Maybe it helps you if you have look at Mark's code, which is essentially the hart of the demo anyway. The GUI is a nice front, but the intelligence/the basics is "hidden" in the code.
