PostgreSQL is a powerful RDBMS which can store data as well as do some manipulations on it such as search or calculating some analytical information and one the techniques is FTS. The Full Text Search (or FTS for short) was introduced in PostgreSQL firstly as a tsearch extension and added into PostgreSQL 8.3 as a core feature. Unfortunately, since PostgreSQL 8.3 FTS almost didn’t change and have some issues which were detected during years of the work with it. I’m working on a patch to extend the abilities and flexibility of FTS configuration mechanism in PostgreSQL and want to describe it in more details in this post.
