Manghi P., Artini M., Bardi A., Atzori C., La Bruzzo S., Mikulicic M. High-performance annotation tagging over solr full-text indexes. In: Information Technologies and Libraries, vol. 33 (3) pp. 22 - 44. American Library Association, 2014.
In this work, we focus on the problem of annotation tagging over information spaces of objects stored in a full-text index. In such a scenario, data curators assign tags to objects with the purpose of classification, while generic end users will perceive tags as searchable and browsable object properties. To carry out their activities, data curators need annotation tagging tools that allow them to bulk tag or untag large sets of objects in temporary work sessions where they can virtually and in real time experiment with the effect of their actions before making the changes visible to end users. The implementation of these tools over full-text indexes is a challenge because bulk object updates in this context are far from being real-time and in critical cases may slow down index performance. We devised TagTick, a tool that offers to data curators a fully functional annotation tagging environment over the full-text index Apache Solr, regarded as a de facto standard in this area. TagTick consists of a TagTick Virtualizer module, which extends the API of Solr to support real-time, virtual, bulk-tagging operations, and a TagTick User Interface module, which offers end-user functionalities for annotation tagging. The tool scales optimally with the number and size of bulk tag operations without compromising the index performance.
