What Next ? A Google DB Engine :)


I was so lost in Google Desktop Search last night, I kept on dreaming
about the endless possiblisties of Google Search Technology.

All DB-2 now needs is a Google DB Search Engine which will throw its
competitors years behind. So are IBM folks listening ?

Hmm that's still better. OK I may have blind faith or maybe I am
hyptnoised by Google's serach performance.. but do you think IBM can
take on Google ? Maybe I am not sure...But bottomline is can they beat
Google ? WOW that would be really exciting but I am not
convinced...only time will tell.... I hope IBM didn't get into a
Billion dollar File System mess like the Evil Empire did :P

I'd be happy with a usable free text search in DB2.

There are multiple DB2 "text extenders", none of which actually work. And,
yes, we've opened PMRs, and even had somebody from IBM Böblingen on-site.
Some obvious bugs (crashes) got fixed, others (including internal errors)
got the "PER" treatment. The Geman word-stemming issues mostly got "WAD"
(some design!), and the crippling restriction to a single column index was
"documented and hence not addressable"; attempts to open a requirement
basically rejected with a hint that IBM was not going to be doing any
further development on free text search.

We finally implemented free text search by using Oracle: we migrate the
relevant data into Oracle on a weekly basis. I suppose this is why the "what
will it cost your business if we don't do it" question didn't really get "a
lot" as an answer - it only really costs "IBM's business".
