16. Working with the Verity Search Interface > 16.2. Populating Collections

Populating Collections

The next step after creating a Verity collection is to populate it with indexed data. Populating a Verity collection is accomplished with the cfindex tag. With the cfindex tag, ColdFusion can index data from a number of sources including numerous file types and query results from any ColdFusion query. What this means is that you can use the cfindex tag to index everything from HTML files and word-processed documents to relational databases, LDAP directories, and POP mail accounts.

Indexing Files

The great thing about bundling Verity’s search technology with ColdFusion is that you can build applications capable of searching a wide range of document types, including both text and binary formats. The Verity engine comes with the KeyView Filter Kit, allowing it to index and search over 45 popular document types, including most popular text, word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation formats. For a complete list of supported formats, see the ColdFusion MX documentation at
