Endeca - (Data|Input|Source) Record


Data records are input/source Data.

Records from a variety of sources are stacked in their native format based on shared attributes. This allows for the data to be:

  • jagged (ie differing sets of attributes from one record to the next, from one source to another)
  • semi-structured or complete unstructured (full-text indexed)


The following XML represents a two single data record (Bike) with attributes (Name, ProductID, BikeType, Color, …):

  <Name type="mdex:string">Road-450</Name>
