Summary

For sites that hold many types of documents or work with data from a variety of sources, ColdFusion's Verity search engine provides an excellent alternative to SQL queries. It works by building collections of data, which can include HTML and CFM files, along with various word-processor documents, spreadsheets, and even database records.

Verity builds an index of collected documents, and when it is used to perform a search, it examines this index rather than the files themselves. This is a very efficient search method, and it gives the developer the ability to create interfaces that can quickly search hundreds of documents on a site. Verity also supports search parameters such as parenthetical phrases, Boolean operators, and quoted phrases as input, just like the search engines you've used on the Web.
