is there any way to optimise the query which has a blob column in where condition ,without using the domain index.

if you say so.

It would be helpful if you followed Posting Guidelines - http://www.orafaq.com/forum/t/88153/0/

I don't know what you have.
I don't know what you do.
I don't know what you see.
It is really, Really, REALLY difficult to fix a problem that can not be seen.
use COPY & PASTE so we can see what you do & how Oracle responds.

Your title says clob, but your message says blob; Which is it, clob or blob? Please post a small test case, including create table statement, insert statement for sample data, index creation, query, and explain plan.

You should create a multi_column_datastore that includes all of the unstructured columns that you are searching for the value TCK68072 in, include that in your index parameters, then just use one contains clause to search for all of those columns, eliminating all of the clauses with like. That will allow one domain index hit for all of those columns. You should also use a bind variable for your search string, so that each subsequent query with a different value does not have to be re-parsed and what is in the SGA can be re-used. Please see the demo below in which I have just included two of the unstrucutred non-clob columns.

Its working fine, but one thing i am getting here,is that i have 100 columns in my table and once i set the ctx_ddl.set_attribute with all columns, its size exceeds and give the error message drg-10706 means maximum size for column list is 500, so please advice me how can i do this and second thing how can i set the sync option of index creation with auto commit .

The column list is limited to 500 bytes. As a workaround, you can use a procedure with a user_datastore instead, which is what the multi_column_datastore does behind the scenes.

Add "sync (on commit)" to your index parameters.

Please see the revised demo below.

Thanks a lot, for your support.
one thing more can i add one more table columns in the same proceuer like this

create or replace procedure test_proc
2 (p_rowid in rowid,
3 p_clob in out nocopy clob)
4 as
5 begin
6 for r in
7 (select * from hclt_parking_lot where rowid = p_rowid)
8 loop
9 dbms_lob.append (p_clob, r.cams_notes);
10 dbms_lob.writeappend (p_clob, length (r.cm_description) + 1, ' ' || r.cm_description);
11 dbms_lob.writeappend (p_clob, length (r.user_impact) + 1, ' ' || r.user_impact);
12 -- add other unstrucutred columns to list
13 end loop;
(select * from eformdynamic where rowid = p_rowid)
8 loop
9 dbms_lob.append (p_clob, r.cams_notes);
10 dbms_lob.writeappend (p_clob, length (r.cm_description) + 1, ' ' || r.cm_description);
11 dbms_lob.writeappend (p_clob, length (r.user_impact) + 1, ' ' || r.user_impact);
12 -- add other unstrucutred columns to list
13 end loop;
14 end test_proc;

and suppose if any one of my table got chnages because of dml,then this procedure will call for all record or only for incremental and is there any draw back or limitations of this approach, that i will have to take care before implementing it on production.

Yes, but not the way that you posted. You need to figure out what columns to join the tables on, then include that in the implicit cursor used by the for loop. I don't know what columns they can be joined on, which is master, which is detail, and so on. If you have columns in different tables with the same names, then you will need to provide aliases for them. You should test your query from SQL*Plus first, then use it in your for loop, something like:

select h.*, e.*
from hclt_parking_lot h, eformdynamic e
where
-- h.rowid = p_rowid and -- skip this line while testing from SQL*Plus
h.some_column = p.some_column;

You should create a before update row trigger on the search_columns column that the index is created on and make sure that you update that column any time that you do any DML that should affect the test index, so that synchronization will be triggered. You should also periodically optimize and rebuild to avoid index fragmentation.

You can find information and examples on all of these things in the searchable online documentation in the Text Reference and Text Application Deveoper's Guide.

Ok.
It means procedure creation would be one time activity and once i create the procedure with this statement(select h.*, e.*
from hclt_parking_lot h, eformdynamic e
where -- h.rowid = p_rowid and
h.some_column = p.some_column) and then i create the index on cm_item_code (this is the column of hclt_parking_lot) and then as you are saying i will have to create one before update trigger on hclt_parking_lot table ,but what code i will wite inside the trigger body, means how my index will synchronised and even some time because of dml one of the column of eformdynamic table got chnaged, so in this case how the complete index will be synchronised because we are creating the triiger on hclt_parking_lot table and will fire this trigger only when cm_item_code will chnage. Please advice.

The trigger should be a before update row trigger. If any of the columns that are included in the indexed search_columns are updated, then that trigger needs to update the column that the index is created on, in order to cause synchronization. It is common to use a separate column of varchar2(1) for that purpose and just set it equal to itself within the tirgger. This column is frequently called a dummy column. There is an example here:

Here is a simple example that first shows that without the triggers the index is not synchronized, then shows that with the triggers the index is synchronized and updated columns in both tables are searchable. Notice that I created a dummy column and created the index on that. You could name your dummy column anything you want instead of dummy. If you use something like search_cols or all_cols instead of dummy, it makes the query make more sense, since it shows that you are searching the search_cols or all_cols instead of searching dummy.

It looks like we were posting at the same time. I don't see anything wrong with what you posted, except that you left off the / after each pl/sql block. Please post a copy and paste of a run of the code from SQL*Plus with results and line numbers as I did.

I tried running your code with just the first few columns in the procedure, since I don't have your table structure, and it worked fine for me, as shown below.

SCOTT@orcl_11gR2> create table hclt_parking_lot
  2    ( cm_itemcode	 clob
  3    , cm_duedate	 date
  4    , cm_seqnumber	 number
  5    , cm_name	 varchar2 (18)
  6    , cm_description  varchar2 (30)
  7    )
  8  /

Table created.

SCOTT@orcl_11gR2> insert into hclt_parking_lot values
  2  ('word1 TCK68072 word2', sysdate, 1, 'TCK_f', 'word3 TCK68072 word4')

Hi Barbara ,

Its working very fine with 'multi_column_datastore', but how can i specify the tablespace name with these clause. Could you please help me out. if I am not putting any tablespace name, its creating in system tablespace.

Thanks
Prashant


begin
ctx_ddl.create_preference ('test_datastore', 'multi_column_datastore');
ctx_ddl.set_attribute
('test_datastore',
'columns',
'cams_notes, cm_description, user_impact'); -- add other unstrucutred columns to list
end;
/


create index test_idx
on hclt_parking_lot (search_columns)
indextype is ctxsys.context

Thanks.

But I am not able to understand how can in corporate those chnages with my existing code which is like

begin
ctx_ddl.create_preference ('test_datastore', 'multi_column_datastore');
ctx_ddl.set_attribute
('test_datastore',
'columns',
'cams_notes, cm_description, user_impact'); -- add other unstrucutred columns to list
end;
/


create index test_idx
on hclt_parking_lot (search_columns)
indextype is ctxsys.context
parameters ('datastore test_datastore')

So how can i create the other preferences with 'BASIC_STORAGE' clause and incorpoarte with multi_colulm_datastore. Could you please tell me considering my existing code.

end;
/

create index idx_parking_lot_search
on hclt_parking_lot (search_item)
indextype is ctxsys.context

storage mystore

But when I am runing this query
select * FROM user_indexes where index_name='IDX_PARKING_LOT_SEARCH'
then the tablesapce column is coming null, why its not showing the tablespace name, pl advice.

Oracle Text domain indexes are not like regular indexes. The index consists of four domain index tables:

dr$your_index_name$i
dr$your_index_name$k
dr$your_index_name$r
dr$your_index_name$n

So, you should be looking for the tablespace_name's that correspond to those tables, as shown below.

It means that there are too many tokens that have "Request" within them. You can increase the wildcard_maxterms, but that may not be sufficient and may cause your queries to run slower. You need to use some criteria more specific than "%Request%". If you are just searching for the word "Request" within the search_item, then you do not need the % wildcards and that may solve the problem. Oracle Text is based on tokens, so you do not need to use wildcards as you would with LIKE in order to find a word within a string.

Actually I have to find all the records where data is matching with "Request", like in sql query

select * from table_name where text like '%Request%'

Then you do not need the % wildcards. It should be just:

select itemtype,itemid
FROM   hclt_hm_defect_eform
where  CONTAINS (search_item, 'Request') > 0;

This is the string in which i am trying to find "Request" but not getting using

select itemtype,itemid
FROM hclt_hm_defect_eform
where CONTAINS(search_item,'Service') > 0

while when i use this then it returns data

select itemtype,itemid
FROM hclt_hm_defect_eform
where CONTAINS(search_item,'%Service%') > 0

You are not going to find "Request" by searching for 'Service'. The other problem is that there is a space missing between "Service" and "Medium", so you would need to search for 'Request%' to find "RequestMedium". The more wildcards that you can eliminate the better. Leading wildcards, in particular, tend to slow down queries. You may still have a problem with there being too many tokens that begin with "Request", in which case you need to either increase the wildcard_maxterms parameter or add some additional criteria to your search.
