Looking to implement Full Text Search capabilities to a Document Management Application I am developing.  Has anyone ever used DTSearch with PowerBuilder?  It looks like this product will accomplish the indexing of the document repository for my application.  I am curious if any of you have had experience with this product and what your advise would be on using them for this function.

If anyone has used another product for Full Text Searching and would like to recommend a product to use, please do.  I am at the very early stages of implementing this feature into my application and open to going with whatever solution would work the best.

Hi Rick,

I haven't used dtSearch before, we use Solr (https://lucene.apache.org/solr/) which uses the Lucene search library for indexing our repository.  Solr is based on Java, but it has a REST API for indexing and searching.  There is a bit of a learning curve to set up Solr and it has heaps of different configuration options. We index our documents from a separate Java application, but the searching is done via our Powerbuilder app.  Solr returns the results to our application as XML (the format of which we specify) and the results are loaded straight into a datawindow using ImportString.
