FindPlus® Distributed Searching
distributed searching is a integrated feature
of dtSearch Desktop, dtSearch Web, and dtSearch
Network that conveniently allows a single search
request to span everything from local drives to
remote servers. Operating through a single user
interface, FindPlus® allows searching of files
and other data throughout an organisation, without
the need to collect the data in a monolithic repository.
example, a dtSearch Desktop user could add a "FindPlus®-enabled"
pre-built dtSearch Web server index to the list
of indexes to search. From the Search dialog box
in dtSearch Desktop, the user can then select
the remote index to search along with local indexes.
dtSearch FindPlus, a single search request
can span multiple local and remote locations.
results will include documents from both local
and remote locations, collectively organised into
a single view.
Distributed Searching uses an XML-based protocol
for exchanging and aggregating search information.
Sample source code is included with the dtSearch Engine.
