Full-Text Search is one of those “extensions” in SQL Server that can give great results, if used correctly and wisely. But, just as quick, can working with Full-Text Search end up in frustration, when the results are not as expected.
How to work against this frustration-factor or even avoif it altogether learns the readers in the book at hand. It describes quite briefly, what Full-Text Search is and how to enable and administer it in SQL Server 2008 and then turns to describe the subtleties into great detail.
How to write simple & advanced Full-Text queries? What to consider when writing client-applications? What peculiarities go along with multilingual searches? What are stop-lists & filters and how to use them effectivly?
These are only but a few topics to which the book gives detailed answers.
Full-Text Search in SQL Server 2008 introduces new features and extends the functionalities of the SQL Server 2005 version once again. This aspect makes the book an interesting read not only for people who want to start with SQL Server 2008 Full-Text Search, but also for people who already use Full-Text Search in SQL Server 2005 and who are now considering a migration to SQL Server 2008.]]>
