dtSearch’s UK distributor offers Language Extension Packs including expanded international language noise word lists, stemming rules and synonym rings.
The dtSearch product line includes Unicode support, allowing indexing and searching of hundreds of languages supported by the Unicode standard. Supplementing this support, dtSearch’s UK distributor (
) provides Language Extension Packs, including expanded international noise word lists, stemming rules and synonym rings. From a sample Cyrillic white paper authored by dtSearch’s UK distributor:
dtSearch “includes a mapping from the Cyrillic ‘i’ to the Latin ‘i’ and thus if you search on web pages spidered by dtSearch you would find all the web pages, irrespective of whether you have a Ukrainian keyboard or a Russian keyboard and make the error of substituting the Latin ‘i’. It is this depth of experience that distinguishes dtSearch from many of the newer entrants to the world of search technology.”

“We migrated our search capabilities over to dtSearch ... This has improved the accuracy of search queries as well as given us much better search result summaries.”
Contegra Systems offers new server-side PDF hit-highlighting solution.
Solution summary: current versions of Adobe Reader do not include an option for highlighting search terms in PDFs. dtSearch offers a no-charge plug-in to re-add this functionality. However, the plug-in requires separate installation for each end-user. As an alternative to the dtSearch plug-in, Contegra Systems has created a “server-side only install” PDF hit-highlighting solution, bypassing the need to have each end-user separately install software to re-add hit highlights back to PDFs.
“Contegra’s server-side solution works directly with dtSearch indexes as well as dtSearch’s extensive query language and syntax. dtSearch developer customers can easily integrate our hit-highlighting server-side solution into their existing applications.”
I-Programmer does article series on C# with the dtSearch Engine APIs to demonstrate threading, database indexing, hit highlighting and caching.
“I’m investigating dtSearch and I can tell you now, it’s a refreshing return to simplicity ... You can use dtSearch from any .NET language, Java or C++. In this case I’m going to use the .NET API and C# 4.0, but the ideas are more or less the same in any language because the same classes are provided to do the same job ... Yes it really is this easy.”
("Getting Started with dtSearch" using C# at I-Programmer)
“Although the main conclusion has to be that this is a really easy to use system, there are always considerations about how to do things in a slightly more sophisticated way. In this article we take a look at how to deal with big searches and the sorts of things you can do with what you find.”
("Threading and dtSearch" using C# at I-Programmer)
“While the output of the conversion is HTML (or RTF, or XML or plain text) the input file can be in any of the supported formats.” “A really nice touch is the provision of the special tags ... which causes the FileConverter to place numbers into the file corresponding to the index of the hit in the array.”
(“Hit highlighting with dtSearch” using C# at I-Programmer)
“Take the same DataSource class and customize it to provide documents or raw text from any source you care to use – ODB, ADO.NET, LINQ, raw SQL, XML, RSS or any of the many web APIs.”
(“Full Text Database Indexing with dtSearch”)
“So far we have ignored one intriguing option” with dtSearch: “you can opt to store the contents of a document within the index" where “the document to be cached could be stored on a website, a cloud datastore or a file share.” “There are so many way to use the text or files cached in the index,” including “to generate a search report using the cache.” Here, “the report consists of all of the hits, with the hits highlighted using bold and an additional 10 words of context surrounding the hit.”
("Document Caching with dtSearch")

Kaleidosearch adds “out of the box” faceted search to a dtSearch Engine installation.
Faceted search, the ability to dynamically filter search results by attributes, has remained out of reach for many organizations looking to add enhanced search options to their e-commerce stores, content-rich websites and other applications. Contegra Systems, designer of award-winning sites for Fortune 500 companies and other major online publishers, has now developed Kaleidosearch. Kaleidosearch lets customers integrate faceted search with a wide range of data sources for plug and play operation.
Built on the dtSearch Engine, “the market-leading search platform,” Kaleidosearch “faceted search leverages your metadata to ensure successful search results and to eliminate dead-end searches.” Contegra “chose to partner with dtSearch after more than 10 years’ experience working with their API. We believe dtSearch offers far and away the best functionality and value in the market.”
: "BUSINESS CHALLENGE ... Make navigation of the site faster and also provide filters to help people narrow down what they're looking for. VENDOR OF CHOICE: CONTEGRA SYSTEMS AND DTSEARCH."
