BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A leader in enterprise and developer text retrieval software and document filters, dtSearch announces new x86 and x64 versions of the company's core developer product, the dtSearch Engine, for Microsoft's Universal Windows Platform (UWP). The dtSearch Engine SDK lets developers embed dtSearch's instant searching of terabytes of data, with over 25 full-text and metadata search options. The SDK also offers access to dtSearch's document filters covering emails and attachments, a broad range of document types, databases and other website data.
The new dtSearch Engine beta provides access to these capabilities for UWP developers working in C#, C++ and other languages. A CodeProject article demonstrates dtSearch Engine functionality under UWP. UWP joins existing released Windows and Linux x86 and x64 versions of the dtSearch Engine, along with beta Android and Mac versions. These versions include APIs for Java and C++ as well as .NET under Windows. Under Azure, the dtSearch Engine can also leverage Microsoft's RemoteApp, giving the search the "look and feel" of a native application running on Windows, Android, iOS or OS X.
In addition to the dtSearch Engine, dtSearch also offers a suite of no-programming-required products. Features across the enterprise and developer product line include:
Terabyte Indexer and Multithreaded Searching. dtSearch products can index over a terabyte of text in a single index, spanning multiple directories, emails and attachments, online data and other databases. dtSearch products can create and search any number of indexes, and can search indexes during updates. The products support efficient, multithreaded searching, with no limit on the number of concurrent search threads.
25+ Search Options and International Language Support.The dtSearch product line has over 25 search types, including special forensics search options. For international languages, dtSearch products support Unicode, including support for right-to-left languages, and Chinese/Japanese/Korean character handling options.
Faceted Search and Other Data Classification Options. The dtSearch Engine SDK supports categorization based on document full-text contents, internal document metadata, database content, or data attributes associated with documents during document indexing. The dtSearch Engine also has APIs for faceted searching and other advanced data classification methods.
Document Filters and Supported Data Types. The product line uses dtSearch's own document filters, with support for "Office" documents, PDF, compression formats, emails and multilayer nested attachments, online data and other databases. After a search, the document filters support the display of retrieved data with highlighted hits. (Document filters are both built into the product line and also available for separate licensing.)
Federated Searching and the dtSearch Spider. dtSearch products offer federated search across any number of databases, directories, email files and attachments. The dtSearch Spider adds local and remote online content to a search. The Spider can index sites to any level of depth, with support for public and secure online content, including log-ins and forms-based authentication. dtSearch products provide integrated relevancy ranking with highlighted hits across both online and offline data.
