Chapter 13. Creating a Search Engine with Verity

Chapter 13. Creating a Search Engine with Verity

ColdFusion makes it easy to search content stored in a database, but what if you need to make your static content searchable? ColdFusion can help you with that task, too, thanks to the Verity search engine, which comes bundled with ColdFusion. Verity allows you to perform rapid, free-text searches by means of a ColdFusion tag. The results of the search are stored in a construct that is similar to a query recordset, so you need only hand off those results to the <cfoutput> tag to have them displayed on a Web page.

In this chapter, you'll learn how to

  • Set up and maintain Verity collections, both through the ColdFusion Administrator and programmatically through CFML tags

  • Set up search interfaces that enable users to search content on your site

  • Index data from a database and learn why doing so is advantageous
