A personal note first:

All of you who have known me as “the Search Guy” for the past 10+ years should note: I have moved on to other challenges and responsibilities.

One of the things I do now, is help with the editing and production of architectural papers.

One of the first products coming out of this new job is coming directly from the Office of the CTO.

“The SAP product road map is entirely driven by the SAP HANA platform” and “Going forward, all SAP applications, both on premise and in the cloud, will be tightly integrated on the common foundation of this one platform” are quotes from this new paper.

How do they all relate? SAP HANA, the platform, the cloud, cloud applications, integrated on-premise applications, their extensibility and SAP Fiori? Find out in SAP HANA – One Platform for All Applications.

    Hi Karsten,  I wish you well in your new activities!  Is there a new “Search Guy” we can contact for problems related to TREX and indexing?

    many thanks

      Hi Nathan,

      that would be TREX in which scenario in your case? There isn’t really anyone in my former role anymore, as the TREX functionalities have largely been moved to HANA.

      Best, Karsten

        Hi Karsten

        We are using TREX to index certain attributes of a  Business Object.  This we have done successfully. 

        There is now a new requirement:  PDF files are being linked to the Business Object via the GOS services.  We would like to index the content of the PDF files.

        Our goal is to search for key words in the Business Object attributes and the PDF content to link up with the Business Object hosting all this content.

        Thank you so much for responding to this inquiry!

        Best Regards

          Would it be an option to write the text content of the PDFs into text field of the object? Actually, if you are using TREX via the ABAP services of SES or Embedded Search these should be equipped to do such things. At least they are doing exactly this type of thing when applied to PLM DMS.

            We have set up some indexes linked to a business object via the SES_ADMIN and developed our own “SE” classes defining which attributes of the object we want to index.  Now we would like to get the linked documents which were added via the GOS services and index their content.

            Would you be available to do 1-2 days of consulting as a coach with our developer here in Switzerland?  Our company http://www.x-apps.com would be very happy to have a specialist review our current TREX development and help us take it to the next level.

            Again thank you very much for taking the time to answer and address these issues.

            Best Regards

              Hi Nathan,

              I sent you a direct message, pointing you to a colleague who may be available for such on site consulting.

              Best, Karsten
