hi everyone:

i would like to know if anyone knows how to add searching capabilities to my site. i don't mean to have my site indexed by a search engine or anything like that, what i want is to provide people with the posibility of entering a word or set of words and have a page that will display a list of my pages that contain that word. it is kind of an internal site search engine.

in the past i used the free services of hitbox.com and i had my site indexed by them everytime that i made any changes but i think that they don't offer that for free anymore.

does anyone knows of other site that migh offer the same kind of service or the algorithm that i can use or add to my site to get this done. fyi, part of the site is hosted on a jakarta-tomcat server and the rest is hosted in an Apache server.
some code will help lots.

thanks,

rene

You can use a javascript search engine.

Your boss will probably spend more paying you by the hour to figure this out than the price of the software, but hey, nothing beats a little job security :)  Good Luck.

It's free - doesn't cost a cent, and there's no time limit. It's called the express account.
