Creating Better Search Functionality & Indexed Collections with ColdFusion MX 7

Document indexing and searching has always been one of the hidden gems in ColdFusion. Since the early days of ColdFusion, the Verity search technology has been an integral part of creating dynamic, high-function web applications.
