Creating and Indexing Collections Programmatically

Working with collections programmatically is a little more involved than using the Administrator, but it’s also more powerful. You should use the programmatic method in these situations:

  • When you’re indexing query results instead of files. The Administrator only allows collections to be indexed using files.

  • When the collection is updated frequently. It’s easier to add an update function to code that allows new documents to be added to the collection than it is to require updates through the Administrator.

  • When users are able to update the collection. You obviously don’t want to allow users access to the Administrator, so you should provide a custom interface.
