i have databese of proterties and its related attributes. I want to search in that database but i cant find proper solution. I want use fulltext search as is described in tutorial but divide it into two sections, one for pages, news and so on and the other for properties. My object structure is following. Can someone help me how to solve this ? Thanks for advices.

class Property extends DataObject {

    static $db = array(
        'changed' => 'SS_Datetime',
        'template_id' => 'Int',
        'user_id' => 'Int'

    static $has_many = array(
        'Attributes' => 'PropertyAttribute'



class PropertyAttribute extends DataObject {

    static $db = array(
        'name' => 'varchar',
        'value' => 'text'
    static $has_one = array(
        'Property' => 'Property'


class PropertyHolder extends Page{

class PropertyHolder_Controller extends Page_Controller {
