that act as
keywords for an object. A Keyword Index will
return any objects that have one or more keywords specified in
a search query.
- Index the physical path of a sequence of

of internal ZCatalog document identifiers that represent a
pre-calculated result list for performance reasons. Instead of
executing the same query on a ZCatalog multiple times it is much
faster to use a TopicIndex instead.
