Chapter 34. Full-Text Searching > Indexing SQL Data

Indexing SQL Data

You've seen how easy it is to use ColdFusion's Verity VDK functionality to index all sorts of files on your system. What if you want to index and search information in your database files? ColdFusion enables you to build a Verity index from data in your database as if the data was a bunch of document files.

In this section you see how Verity enables you to neatly get around the limitations that make SQL less than ideal for true text-based searching. By the time you're finished, you'll have a good understanding of when you should unleash Verity's rich search capabilities on your database data and when you're better off leaving things to SQL instead.
