Abstract

A method is described to create a particular contextual data repository. A contextual data repository (CDR) is a a collection of entries for extracted documents. A CDR is created and maintained by a single program. This method provides a single interface consisting of a common set of search commands that are translated into the particular contextual search program's commands for searching the particular contextual database. The common set of commands are used to access one or all of the data repositories. The contextual data repository is often large and comprises many different categories of information. Significant resource would be consumed if the entire data repository had to be searched, and the user is often aware of a particular category that is likely to contain the information.
