This new release adds distributed searchingand other features to improve access to information throughout an organization.The new features also expand the functionality of the dtSearch developercomponent for use with a wide variety of programming languages.
dtSearch products offerinstant-indexed (and slower un-indexed) searching of large document collections,such as word processors, databases, spreadsheets, e-mail, ZIP, XML, andmore. Over 2 dozen full-text search options are offered, and all productsdisplay retrieved files with highlighted hits, along with (for HTML andAdobe PDF) embedded images and links.
FindPlus distributed searchingis a new integrated feature of dtSearch Desktop, dtSearch Web, and dtSearchNetwork that allows a single search request to span everything from localdrives to remote servers. Operating through a single user interface, FindPlusenables indexed searching of files and other data throughout an organization,without the need to collect the data in a monolithic repository. BecauseFindPlus uses an XML-based protocol for exchanging and aggregating searchinformation, developers using the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine can alsoeasily incorporate this capability into their own applications.
