Announcing 64-Bit Beta of dtSearch® Engine for Win & .NET; Initial Office 2007 Support

P: n/a
A new beta build offers 64-bit developer access to dtSearch's
"terabyte indexer," and
preliminary MS Word 2007 and Excel 2007 support (in both 64-bit and
32-bit versions)

BETHESDA, MD (July 22, 2006) dtSearch Corp., a leading supplier of
enterprise and developer text retrieval software, announces a native
64-bit beta version of the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine for Win &
..NET. The dtSearch Engine lets developers add dtSearch's "terabyte
indexer" search functionality and file format support to Web-based
and other applications. The product (both 32-bit and 64-bit beta) also
adds preliminary MS Word 2007 and Excel 2007 support to the existing
list of supported file types.

dtSearch Engine, developer overview. The dtSearch Engine makes
available dtSearch's "terabyte indexer" search functionality and
file format support through .NET 2.0 and other APIs. The product
provides over two dozen search options, with hit-highlighted display.
The product also supports distributed or federated searching across
multiple data sources, and includes .NET 2.0 API access to dtSearch's
built-in Web Spider. All dtSearch Engine features have been ported to
64-bit in the beta.

Terabyte indexer. Like the rest of the dtSearch product line, the
dtSearch Engine can index over a terabyte of text in a single index--as
well as create and simultaneously search an unlimited number of
indexes. Indexed search time is typically less than a second, even
across terabytes of data.

Supported file types. After a search, dtSearch can display HTML, XML
and PDF files with highlighted hits and with embedded images, links and
formatting intact. dtSearch uses built-in proprietary HTML converters
for browser display of non-Web-ready content (MS Office, OpenOffice,
ZIP, CSV, Unicode, and other popular file types) with highlighted hits.

Database and fielded data support. In addition to searching fields in
all supported file types, the dtSearch Engine offers hit-highlighted
precision search options for ODBC, XML and SQL-type databases,
including support for BLOB data. The dtSearch Engine also has
extensive support for adding on-the-fly classification information and
other fields to documents during indexing.

dtSearch Spider. The dtSearch Engine includes full access to
dtSearch's built-in Spider functionality through a .NET/.NET 2.0 API.
The Spider supports:
· public sites, secure content HTTPS, password-accessible sites, and
forms-based authentication
· searching of Web-based content to any specified level of horizontal
or vertical depth
· searching of static content (HTML, XML, PDF, etc.) as well as
dynamic content (ASP.NET, MS CMS, SharePoint, etc.), with WYSWYG
display of native Web-based content with highlighted hits
· integrated relevancy-ranking of Spidered and non-Spidered content
(all with highlighted hits)

Search types; international language support. The dtSearch product
line offers over two dozen indexed and unindexed search options. These
include: fuzziness adjustable from 0 to 10 (to sift through
typographical and spelling errors), synonym/concept/thesaurus (both
through a built-in thesaurus and through optional user-defined synonym
rings), boolean (and/or/not), natural language relevancy ranking (by
hit term frequency, density and rarity), positional scoring ranking,
phrase, phonic, wildcard, bilateral proximity, directed proximity,
stemming, numeric range, user-defined variable term weighting, and
special forensics options. The dtSearch product line also provides
international language support through Unicode, covering hundreds of
international languages.

dtSearch product line. In addition to the dtSearch Engine for Win &
..NET, the dtSearch product line also includes: dtSearch Desktop with
Spider, for instantly searching files on a PC (or on PC-accessible
network drives); dtSearch Network with Spider, for network-based
searching; dtSearch Web with Spider, for quickly publishing a large
volume of instantly searchable data to an Internet or Intranet site;
dtSearch Publish, for publishing an instantly searchable document
collection to CD, DVD, portable harddrive, and the like; and the
dtSearch Engine for Linux, for making available dtSearch search
functionality through C++ and Java APIs for Linux programmers.
