Part: VI Building Dynamic Web Pages > Integrating Search Functionality

Chapter 27. Integrating Search Functionality

IN THIS CHAPTER

As you have seen, a database exists for the sole purpose of storing data. Tables exist to separate that data into well-structured and meaningful blocks of information that can be accessed at any time in an ordered manner. Most successful websites exist because the information in those sites is relatively easy to access. When you search for a book on Amazon.com, for example you expect to find it within seconds of being on the site. You type a book name, click Search, and the results appear in a well-structured and elegant manner. If you visit eBay's website in an effort to find that treasure someone might be auctioning off, you type the name of the item you are looking for and select a form object, usually a Submit button, to perform the search. It's safe to say that in today's application service provider business model, most companies employ some mechanism for allowing their users quick access to the data that powers the company.
