Database retrieval

This article appears in the issue July/August 2005 [Volume 14, Issue 7]

Mondosoft has released a new Database Retrieval Module (DRM) for its MondoSearch customers. The product is designed to meet the needs of e-commerce companies, particularly those with high-turnover online catalogs, multiple types of databases, platforms and applications. The new module is said to enable users to simultaneously search and retrieve information from internal databases across the enterprise, and from external sources, such as public Web content.

Mondosoft says DRM is designed to work in nearly any network environment, delivering indexing capability without changes to existing infrastructures or sites. Further, the company reports, DRM is especially well suited for custom content installations using Microsoft Commerce Server or for intranets where dedicated client applications are used to access database content. The module allows indexing of database content, Web pages and other types of content into one unified search database. Users can view their search results as converted HTML layouts or can be redirected to existing Web pages.

DRM extracts content from the databases using live connections and can be set up to do incremental extracts of changed records only.

The Mondosoft Database Retrieval Module is extensible to most database systems as needed and indexes Lotus Notes databases, Microsoft SQL Server databases and ODBC databases.

The live connections ensure that users always see up-to-date content from the databases when selecting their preferred results, says Mondosoft, adding that DRM also allows for custom setups or table presentations of each individual database.
