Abstract

In this paper we present the extension of our prototype three-level database system (TIJAH) developed for structured information retrieval. The extension is aimed at modeling vague search on XML elements. All three levels (conceptual, logical, and physical) of the TIJAH system are enhanced to support vague search concepts. The vague search is implemented as vague selection of XML elements using XML element name expansion lists and rewriting techniques. We test the performance of retrieval models using automatically generated expansion lists and compared them with models that use manual ones. The goal is to find the best approach for structured information retrieval with vague structural constraints on element names expressed in the query.
