The built-in dtSearch Spider allows Web developers and desktop/network
users to add Web site content to a locally searchable database. The Spider
can search Web site content to any specified level of page depth, and supports
ordinary public sites, secure content (HTTPS) sites, password-accessible
sites, and dynamic-content ASP and ASP.NET sites. The Spider includes
integrated relevancy ranking with local searches, including WYSIWYG display
with highlighted hits of HTML, PDF and XML Web-based files.
In addition to "vertical" searching of pages linked from a URL, the Spider
can now "horizontally" crawl all sites linked to a URL. (In keeping with the
broader reach of the dtSearch Spider, the new version also adds options to
limit indexed data by file size, file number, time on a Web site, etc.) The
Spider also now supports forms-based authentication.
Along with the Spider enhancements, dtSearch Web adds new options to the
set-up wizard's search form generation, such as easy date range control,
automatic generation of field searching controls, and stylesheet-based search
form and search results formatting. dtSearch Publish uses a version of
dtSearch Web on its CD/DVDs, along with a mini HTTP server. The result is
instantly searchable CD/DVDs that run with zero footprint. Because dtSearch
Publish also uses dtSearch Web, the search form enhancements also apply to
The dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine, available in both Win & .NET and Linux
versions, currently supports SQL, Delphi, Java, C++, C++.NET, C#, VB.NET and
ASP.NET. The new version adds a new native .NET sample application for
indexing and searching any database accessible via ADO.NET. The new version
also includes Java API enhancements.
In addition, the entire dtSearch product line now adds a positional
scoring option to dtSearch's built-in relevancy ranking by hit term frequency,
density and rarity. The new positional scoring ranks documents more highly
when hits are near the top of a file, or otherwise clustered in a file. The
scoring option works in connection with all existing indexed, unindexed,
fielded and full-text search features, including: fuzziness adjustable from 0
to 10 (to sift through typographical and spelling errors),
synonym/concept/thesaurus, boolean (and/or/not), natural language, phrase,
phonic, wildcard, proximity, stemming, numeric range, and user-defined
variable term weighting.
Pricing is $199 for dtSearch Desktop with Spider, from $800 for dtSearch
Network with Spider, from $999 for dtSearch Web with Spider, and from $2,500
for dtSearch Publish. dtSearch offers a variety of royalty-based and royalty-
free pricing options for the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine for Win & .NET and
