Hi All,

Can we use Oracle9i(Oracle Text formerly known as interMedia Text) as an search engine.
Because we are giving (CTX_DDL & CTXAPP) role to the particular schema, in that schema we are enabling the preference object
like multicolumndatastore and creating index and retreiving the result through select query.

Tell me whether it is correct or not.
Let me know any comments on the above statement, so that i will implement in my project.

Yep - you can search your db this way.

You mentioned 'search engine' in your post. To be clear, Text is not a crawler. You specify the datasource that you want to index, and do so. Your search page would include a query that uses CONTAINS.

If you need a crawler, look at Oracle Ultra Search (included with the db as well). It uses Oracle Text under the covers.
