I have created a document management system and now am at the point where I need to create a search feature that will search the content of each document. I've begun to read up on Verity that is shipped with ColdFusion MX and also noticed the option of K2.
Should I be using Verity or should I be looking into K2? I created a collection in the ColdFusion administrator but I read that it is better to use the utilities instead of having ColdFusion create the collection. Is that true and if so to how would I use these utilties?
Has anyone set up a similar search function? I need to make sure I am following the correct steps and I really need to get this working quickly so any help in what steps are necessary would be great. Any documentation links would be great too.
Does anyone have any code examples of searching a collection and outputting the results? I need to somehow check each document compare it to my database record and then make sure the person searching has permission to view the document. I actually have permissions set up on a folder level so is there a way to only allow folders that the person making the search has permission to? Thanks for any help on this one!
