Cross-site Search WSS

  Asked By: Aaditya    Date: Oct 23    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1209

I need an web part for cross site search functionaliy, WSS. This web
part should not use SQL search services as they load the SQL server. I
downloaded CorasWorks web part for the same and came to know that it
uses the SQL search functionality.
Are their any other web parts which provide the functionality without
using the SQL search services?

It's highly unlikely there is a web  part that does what you want. WSS search
uses SQL search  under the covers, so to not use SQL search would require
creating a completely seperate search index and crawler (a.l.a. SPS 2003).

unless u have a dedicated indexing/search server  and programme to fetch details
from it this will be a tough task. MS sharepoint integrates tightly with SQL

Of course, shortly WSS 3.0 provides some API functionality  for
Xsite\XLibrary searching but that will again use CAML based searching
and creating searches using the WSS search  Service is limited to only
searching "well-known" pieces of metadata and not custom columns on
