Functional OperatorsΒΆ

The domain index operators substructure, exactMatch and similarity are not available as functional operators that can be applied to any text column. While this is easily implemented, a design decision was taken to not provide this functionality. Because each row tested using a functional operator will necessitate a call-out to the RMI server, a search on an un-indexed table is likely to overwhelm the RMI server.
