Send contents and files

In the previous section a single object was indexed with title and key. Mindbreeze offers a very easy possibility for the indexing of an object’s content. You can send existing files directly and let the Mindbreeze Filter Service extract all the content from the document. The methods setContent and setExtension are important for this. With setContent you transmit the bytes of the content. With setExtension you define the file type of the content. If you enter .doc here, for example, and the word document data contains content then the filter automatically extracts the content and additional information such as the author.

But you can also simply send a string as content.


To sum up, an object’s content is determined with the properties content and extension. The content’s data is transmitted in content. The extension txt means that the content is viewed as a text document.
