Chapter 38. Full-Text Searching > Understanding Full-Text Searching

Understanding Full-Text Searching

Full-text searching is the performing of sophisticated searches on blocks of text. Unlike database indexing, which usually sorts data alphabetically, full-text searching accesses its indexed data in many different ways—substring searches, proximity searches, relevancy searches, and more.

To facilitate full-text searching, ColdFusion includes with a custom implementation of the Verity K2 Server. This integrated Java based engine allows developers to perform full-text searches on database queries and file libraries. Verity generates a read-optimized set of indexes called a collection, and it provides search tools to retrieve result sets ranked by relevancy. Verity runs as a separate service or daemon that must be installed and running to be used.
