Part III: Developing a Data-Driven Web Site > Building Search Capabilities

Chapter 9. Building Search Capabilities

You’ve done it! You just finished putting the final touches on the new line of products that will change the world as we know it. Or maybe you just want to increase your sales by 200% by making your products available on the Web. All that stands between you and total success is a way to let your customers see and order your products.

So what’s next? You could create a single Web page that lists every product you offer, complete with description and photo, but that would take hours to load. How about building a page for each product and then creating and maintaining a page that links to each of the product pages? Yeah, right! Like you have that much spare time.

The solution is to take advantage of UltraDev’s database-connectivity features: Put all your products and their pertinent information into a single, easy-to-maintain database and create a page that allows your visitors to search the database using the keywords criteria that they choose. Sound difficult? Not with UltraDev!

To show you just how easy it is to build a variety of search applications using UltraDev, this chapter focuses on the following:

  • Building a single parameter search

  • Building a restricted simple search

  • Adding advanced search capabilities
