Solution

Updatable document base

The user has access to hundreds of thousands of documents: official responses from US Customs to citizens from various states, regulations regulating the diversion of all kinds of goods (from freshly caught crabs to fireworks and carburetors), actual notices of customs services, etc. Documents are obtained from closed state servers. Available as the most current documents, and records dating from 1966 year.

Elasticsearch engine and MongoDB

Flexible search allows you to quickly find the document you need. The search query can be general, but can be as specific as possible: everything depends on the user's awareness and on his goals. So, using simple search query rules, you can find all the documents containing the words "frozen red fish", and you can find a specific document published on a certain day, by a certain civil servant. Quick search of a huge array of documents provides a competent backend infrastructure: using non-relational, document-oriented database MongoDB, as well as a powerful search engine Elasticsearch.
