Projects / DBSight


DBSight is a J2EE search platform for instant scalable full-text search on any relational database, for both beginners and experts. It lets you add Lucene-based searching to any Web page with SQL and JavaScript. It features a built-in database crawler that follows user-defined SQL, incremental indexing, configurable result ranking, highlighted search results (like Google), categorized result counts (like Amazon), and sharded distributed search. Scaffolding supports tag cloud, suggest-as-you-type, spell checker, and much more. It easily integrates with other languages through XML, JSON, and HTML, and can embed the search UI and results to any Web page by just copying a section of JavaScript. No Java coding is necessary. All managing operations are UI-based. Deleted or updated records in the database can be synchronized. Content outside the database can also be searched.
