  • Is it possible create a collections inside other collection? for example I have a collection COMPANY and from this collection I want to create a few collections (CLIENT, PROVIDER, etc), so that I could search documents for a client by filtering for its collections as PROFILE, PROVIDER, etc. I don't want insert a document in different collections, just one document per collections. In this example I have 2 collections COMPANY1 and COMPANY2, for every collection I want to have a few collections(CLIENT, PROVIDER) as we can see: COLLECTION1 --> COLLECTION2 --> DOC-URI ------------------------------------------------------------------ COMPANY1 --> CLIENT --> /code/client/client1_company1.xml COMPANY1 --> CLIENT --> /code/client/client2_company1.xml COMPANY1 --> PROVIDER --> /code/provider/provider1_company1.xml COMPANY1 --> PROVIDER --> /code/provider/provider2_company1.xml COMPANY2 --> CLIENT --> /code/client/client1_company2.xml COMPANY2 --> CLIENT --> /code/client/client2_company2.xml COMPANY2 --> PROVIDER --> /code/provider/provider1_company2.xml COMPANY2 --> PROVIDER --> /code/provider/provider2_company2.xml
    • Collections can't be inside of other collections, but you can assign multiple collections and look for the intersection of them. In other words, you could assign a document to collections "company1" and "client", then your query could be "cts:and-query((cts:collection-query("company1"), cts:collection-query("client"))". If you really want the hierarchy, I would use directories for that.
