Introduction to Building a Search Interface

ColdFusion’s search capabilities are provided by the Verity search engine. This engine is capable of doing full-text indexing and searching of a wide variety of file types, from text files to common application data formats, such as Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF.

The Verity search engine performs its searches on collections instead of on original documents. A Verity collection is a database that contains metadata that describes the information in the document, which allows for very fast and powerful indexed searches.
