Our company is evaluating if it's possible to implement full text search on our website within certain time frame. The requirements are that search has to be performed on the database tables (6-8 tables) and files (pdf, ppt, doc; 4-5 Gb).
Some tech specs:
asp.net / framework 3.5
sql server 2005
windows 2008 / IIS7
My question is how long does it usually take to implement? I know it's hard to answer precisely but +/- a week. I am getting very different estimates from contractors and not sure who to believe.
