The Results Order

The results order based on the id() number in class PageText, descending order.

A Page has many PageTexts. if don't need multiple Texts, modify Html.getDefaultTexts(Page), returns only one PageText (the page description text only, Config.DescriptionOnly=true ).

the Page.GetRandomContent() method is used to keep the Search-Page-Content always changing, doesn't affect the real PageText order.

Use the ID number to control the order instead of loading all pages to memory.

Search Method

search (... String keywords, long startId, long count)

startId => which ID(the id when you created PageText) to start, use (startId=Long.MaxValue) to read from the top, descending order

count => records to read, important parameter, the search speed depends on this parameter, not how big the data is.

Next Page

set the startId as the last id from the results of search minus one

startId = search( "keywords", startId, count);
nextpage_startId = startId - 1 // this 'minus one' has done inside search()
//read next page
search("keywords", nextpage_startId, count)

mostly, the nextpage_startId is posted from client browser when user reached the end of webpage, and set the default nextpage_startId=Long.MaxValue, in javascript the big number have to write as String ("'" + nextpage_startId + "'")

Private Server


public Page Html.Get(String url);

Set your private WebSite text

Page page = new Page();
page.url = url;
page.title = title;
page.text = bodyText
page... = ...
return page;
