ColdFusion’s Verity support can be used to perform sophisticated full text searching. And while simple text searches (equality or substring searches) are the most frequent search types, more sophisticated searching using expressions and wildcards can also be performed, even searches involving text proximity (how close strings are to each other) and stem matches (words that are derivatives of the search text), and more. Of course, you’ll need to create intuitive search screens to facilitate this searching, but once you have done so, ColdFusion and Verity will do all the hard work for you.
