JSS: A few notes for the technically inclined user
How JSS worksJSS uses a simple inverted word list. Each individual word that appears in the corpus of documents is associated with a list of documents (or a list of pages) in which the word apprears.
JSS is the simplest way to provide search capabilities for CDROM document collections, and for Web sites with no access to CGI scripts.
Indexing your Collection with JSSThere are two ways to index a collection with JSS. The easiest one is to use the Bib2Web conversion server. Bib2Web is a free web service that allows you to build and index a collection of documents in PostScript, TIFF, PDF, or DjVu formats. Bib2Web has the considerable advantage of having a built-in OCR engine (which is particularly useful for scanned documents). No software installation is required.
The second possibility is to install the JSS package. This package includes the jssindex program which provides a very simple way to make a document collection searchable.
To index collections of documents in the DjVu format with JSS, you must download and install the DjVuLibre package.
