  6. 6. Endeca Components• Endeca Information Transformation Layer (ITL): – Reads raw source data and manipulates it into Endeca MDEX indices. – Runs offline at intervals appropriate for your business needs.• Endeca MDEX Engine – Query Engine. – Loads the indices generated by the indexing component of ITL. – MDEX receives queries from Endeca Application Tier, executes them and returns results to application tier.• Endeca Application Tier – Provides interface to MDEX engine via Endeca Assembler. – Endeca Assembler API is a language agnostic interface for aggregating queries to MDEX engine and execute any necessary post processing on the results. © 2011 GrapeCity inc. 6
  7. 7. Navigation Queries Vs Keyword Search Queries• Navigation Queries: Returns a set of records based on application defined record characteristics along with follow on query information.• Keyword Search Queries: Returns records or dimensions based on user defined keyword along with any follow on query information. © 2011 GrapeCity inc. 7
  8. 8. Endeca Terminology-Records, Dimensions and Properties• Endeca Records: – Entities in your data set that you are navigating to or searching for. For e.g. bottles of wine, customer records in a CRM application.• Dimensions: – Define logical structure for data to support queries. – Collection of related dimension values organized into a tree. – Dimension Values are tags or labels you use to classify records. – Wine Type is a dimension with red, white, sparkling as possible dimension values.• Endeca Properties: – Describe descriptive information about individual endeca records. – E.g.- Decription, price is an endeca property. – Donot provide any navigation support. © 2011 GrapeCity inc. 8
  9. 9. Dimension Hierarchies Additional control over the logical structure used to organize your Endeca Records. When u navigate on a dimension value, you implicitly navigate all of dimension value’s children. Faster querying: Reduce the amount of follow on information (Endeca removes dead ends). © 2011 GrapeCity inc. 9
