You can configure
boosts at indexing time, for example, to boost specific properties, and at query execution to boost a specific word in the query. For more information, see http://docs.day.com/content/en/home/crx/crx141/first_steps_with_crx/searching_in_crx/0.html.
boosts at query execution in the query itself, using the ^ operator.
jcr:contains(., 'jelly sandwich^4')
In this example, the word "sandwich" has weight four times more than the word "jelly."
boosts at indexing time in the search indexing configuration file (see IndexingConfig).
Bsp indexing_config.xml: <?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE configuration SYSTEM "http://jackrabbit.apache.org/dtd/indexing-configuration-1.0.dtd"> <configuration ... <index-rule nodeType="cq:PageContent"> <property boost="4.0">jcr:title</property> </index-rule> </configuration>
In this example, the property
jcr:title has weight four times more than normal properties.
Note: The boost in this case is respected only if a
jcr:contains() is done on the corresponding property, for example
jcr:contains(@jcr:title, 'find this'). If there is only a
jcr:contains(., 'find this'), the
boosts at indexing time have no effect.
Find more information about possible configurations in the search indexing configuration file on the jackrabbit wiki, see http://wiki.apache.org/jackrabbit/IndexingConfiguration. (Note: It is jackrabbit-specific and must not be absolutely equivalent in CRX!)
Note: For information on how to modify the indexing_config.xml mentioned in this article, see http://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/kb/SearchIndexingConfig.html.
