Picking up document properties from document content

Question asked by ashokharnal on Feb 25, 2011
Presently Alfresco has extractors to pick up document
properties from say Word document properties. But more is needed
to facilitate quick and automated indexing.

I wish there was some automated way to look up
certain text pattern within the document itself and pick up property
value from it. This will help the content contributor to himself
add desired properties instead of leaving it to the person
who is scanning and indexing the document to decide what
are the document properties. The two persons are usually different.
The content writer or contributor is not computer savvy but he is expert
in what he is writing and what all is important and what are the various keywords
and properties of the document. The person who later scans this document deposits in Alfresco and
writes its properties is normally different person.
