No excerpt for DAM asset search with QueryBuilder

Avatar

Former Community Member

Hi everybody!

I'm using com.day.cq.search.QueryBuilder to search for pages and documents. The page search (type=cq:Page) works just fine and results hits return excerpts just fine via getExcerpt(). But I have an issue with getting excerpts (that show a part of the text where the search term was found) after searching for DAM assets (type=dam:Asset). The assets are PDFs, DOCs, PPTs and XLSs, so there actually is no issue with getting the results I was looking for. The right files with the term within the files are found - so it DOES the "inner" search, I just can't get where it finds it. The problem is that the hits' excerpts are blank, empty strings (""). I tried getExcerpts() method that returns a Map<String, String> of excerpts, but nothing useful was inside. I can't use com.day.cq.wcm.foundation.Search because of other issues and because it's not as modifiable as QueryBuilder. Can anybody help me with this please?

How you are calling getExcerpt method ? Note that for page and DAM, way getExcerpt() is called is different,

something like,

/**

     * Get Highlighted title

     * @return

     * @throws Exception

     */

    public String getTitle() throws Exception {

        if (isPage()) {

            return null!=getExcerpt(JcrConstants.JCR_TITLE) ? getExcerpt(JcrConstants.JCR_TITLE): this.valueMap.get(JcrConstants.JCR_TITLE, "");

        } else {

            return null!=getExcerpt(DamConstants.METADATA_FOLDER+"/"+DamConstants.DC_TITLE) ? getExcerpt(DamConstants.METADATA_FOLDER+"/"+DamConstants.DC_TITLE): this.valueMap.get(DamConstants.METADATA_FOLDER+"/"+DamConstants.DC_TITLE, "");

        }

    }

    /**

     * Get Highlighted description

     * @return

     * @throws Exception

     */

    public String getDescription() throws Exception {

        if (isPage()) {

            return null!=getExcerpt(JcrConstants.JCR_DESCRIPTION) ? getExcerpt(JcrConstants.JCR_DESCRIPTION): this.valueMap.get(JcrConstants.JCR_DESCRIPTION, "");

        } else {

            return null!=getExcerpt(DamConstants.METADATA_FOLDER+"/"+DamConstants.DC_DESCRIPTION) ? getExcerpt(DamConstants.METADATA_FOLDER+"/"+DamConstants.DC_DESCRIPTION): this.valueMap.get(DamConstants.METADATA_FOLDER+"/"+DamConstants.DC_DESCRIPTION, "");

        }

    }

 

/**

     * @return the default excerpt for this hit.

     * @throws RepositoryException if an error occurs while building the

     * excerpt.

     */

    private String getExcerpt(String input) {

       try{

            return null!=input && !"".equals(input) ? this.hit.getExcerpts().get(input):null;

        }catch(RepositoryException e){

            

        }catch (Exception e) {

            // TODO: handle exception

        }

        return null;

    }

Map<String, String> map = new HashMap<String, String>(); map.put("path", searchPath); if (searchType != null && !"".equals(searchType)) { map.put("type", searchType); } if (extensionFilter != null) { map.put("group.p.or", "true"); for (int i = 0; i < extensionFilter.length; i++) { map.put("group." + i + 1 + "_nodename", "*.".concat(extensionFilter[i])); } } if (escapedQueryForAttr != null && !"".equals(escapedQueryForAttr)) { map.put("fulltext", escapedQueryForAttr); } Query query = this.getService(QueryBuilder.class).createQuery(PredicateGroup.create(map), this.slingRequest.getResource().getResourceResolver().adaptTo(Session.class)); query.setHitsPerPage(0); SearchResult result = query.getResult();

I use it simply like this:
excerpt = hit.getExcerpt();

But I also tried this hit.getExcerpts() method to get this Map<String, String> and logged it whole, but nothing useful was inside. Just to be sure, I tried yours:
hit.getExcerpts().get(DamConstants.METADATA_FOLDER + "/" + DamConstants.DC_DESCRIPTION);

and unfortunatelly, it's null...
