Flexible high level search construction and execution for Zope (>= 4)

Project description

``AdvancedQuery`` is a Zope product extending Zope's search
engine ``ZCatalog`` with the following key features:

* flexible and intuitive construction of query objects

* support for arbitrary "and", "or" and "not" combinations of queries

* flexible multi-level sort support; incremental sorting

* ranking support

* new elementary searches (such as "glob" and "regexp" searches)

* support for incremental filtering

* functional and/or efficiency gains via Zope "(subscription) adapter"s
for indexes

* optional integration with
a low level incremental search engine
aiming to reduce the number of ZODB loads for searching


For more information, see ``AdvancedQuery.html`` in the ``doc`` subfolder.


The package can be ``pip`` installed.

The use of this package requires that its ``configure.zcml`` is
"executed" during startup (usually, this happens automatically).

In order to use this package in Plone, the companion package
``dm.plone.advancedquery`` must be installed and its ``configure.zcml``
"executed" during startup.

Partial history

Python 3/Zope 4 compatibility

Drop support for Zope2 (due to significant differences
between the ``Products.ZCatalog`` versions for
Zope2 and Zope 4+, respectively).

Supports Plone 5.2+ via the companion package ``dm.plone.advancedquery`.

Integration of indexes and ``dm.incrementalsearch`` now customizable
via (subscription) adapters -- independence of ``Products.ManagableIndex``
and ``dm.incrementalsearch``.

Adapt to cosmetic modifications in ``Products.CMFCore==2.3.0``.

use the newer index sorting API (``documentToKeyMap``) if
the older API (``keyForDocument``) is missing or obviously broken.

The fix has been introduced for the ``nogopip`` index used in Plone 4.1.
Unfortunately, this index version not only defines a broken
``keyForDocument`` but in addition uses call frame inspection targeted
at ``ZCatalog`` sorting which fails when called by ``AdvancedQuery``,
Until this problem is resolved, you cannot use a ``nogopip`` index as
sort index for ``AdvancedQuery``.

Zope 2.13 compatibility

fix test suite for Zope 2.12 by dropping ``ZopeTestCase.framework`` support.
This implies that the test suite can now only be executed via the Zope
test runner.
