16.1. Creating Collections

The first step in creating a search interface for your ColdFusion application is to define a Verity collection and register it with ColdFusion. A Verity collection is actually a specialized database that stores metadata about a group of documents or a ColdFusion query object that you specify. Instead of searching through each of your documents or query objects every time a search is performed, Verity searches through the metadata stored in the collection you created. Because the metadata is highly optimized, Verity can quickly and efficiently locate your search criteria. Collections can be created and subsequently registered via the ColdFusion Administrator or created programmatically with the CFCOLLECTION tag or via command-line utilities such as Verity's mkvdk or Spider tools. Consult your ColdFusion documentation for more information on creating and indexing collections with Verity's command-line tools.
