Thanks for your response.
I thought it was going to have something to do with xdoc-to-lucene.xsl but i don't know how to implement new field in that stylesheet. I can see how the other fields are stored but what i don't know how the xdoc version of my files look so i can't extend the exsiting template.
I could just take a look at what the xml2xdoc stylesheet does but it would be a lot easyer if i could take a look at an actual xdoc file....is there a way to store those intermediate xdoc files ?!
I'm not very familiar with cocoon jet so that might be a dumb question.
The pipeline goes like this: our xml (dita) -> xdoc -> html, pdf, ... Right ?!

Yeah, in trying to answer your question I realize that the
documentation in this area is weak. After you understand this stuff,
it'd be great if you could contribute to them.

For any given document, you can add a .lucene extension and the
element names are the searchable field names. These are mostly title,
subtitle, abstract, version, author, and content.

I don't think there's a way to add per-project fields, but for you
Forrest implementation, you can try to add it into

Hmm... I'm not sure, I reckon you'd have to index it based on its xdoc

Yeah, one per thread is always preferred - mail threads are cheap though:)
I'm not sure what version of Forrest you are on but I had to do some
hacking just to get the indexing to work - I reckon it's been a
long-standing bug. I'll take that up on the dev@ list though. Good
