Dear all,
I would like to build a search engine which be able to search into a folder with PDF files.
I have about 90 PDF files and I will upload 1 new file per month
Is there any component to do that?

Thanks in advanced
Watch Question


Have you ever try this?
Do you know how it works?

this is a search engine library for your site.
I have tried the java version. Lucene.net is a .net port of lucene java.

BTW, is there any reason you are not using Microsoft Indexing Server?


I must admit that I am not a high skill developer!

The hosters use to have MIS? I have the host in 1and1

Using this (I don't know how it works and how to use it) will be possible / easy?
if your hosting provider supports it, then you can use microsoft indexing service.

this is a link for the article on how to do it.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.
