Webinator Web Index & Retrieval System is
a highly customizable package that allows a Website administrator
to easily create and deploy a high quality search interface to
collections of web documents.
With support for multiple collections, a single installation can
serve searches for many websites, or different areas within a website,
and a customizable thesaurus or synonym file allows users to find documents
even if the terminology they use is different from that on the site.
Webinator serves as an
example of the type of applications that can be built around Thunderstone's
Texis RDBMS and Web Script.
We believe the Webinator is the finest system of its kind in existence on
the Web and we would like organizations to try it out and see if they
feel the same way.
From the Administrator's perspective Webinator offers the following
Fully customizable search interface with XML and SOAP support.
Index multiple sites into one common index.
Detailed verification and logging of document linkages.
Index/update documents while database is in use.
