How to create search engine in MVC

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Hi I'm using EF and MVC for the first time and I need some strategy hints.  I have a list of skill sets (ID + Name) which I need to make searchable from a textbox. Then in a seperate step I need to find all people with those skill sets. What's a smart way of doing this? I've been thinking about having two listboxes bound to multiselect lists and then moving records from one listbox to the other. I did that in ASP once, but have no idea of how to do it in MVC.   Re Dennis

ASP.NET Search Engine with MS Access for optional search criteria




I am creating a simple search engine similiar to:  


I have a text box for the last name and a dropdown list for the club name. If one value is entered, it will search for just one value, and ignore the blank value in the other. If there are 2 values it will search for 2 values, and no values should pull no results.

Using VS 2005 and Access 2003-2005.  My statement works fine in access but in the accessdatasource there are issues with the @ symbol in VS 2005, the ? symbol works, but generates multiple parameters, when I only need 2.

This statement works fine in the access query: (I do believe the statement is correct), but then again im using a drop down list, does that change the rules? Such as dropdownlist.selecteditem.text = ???

Create a new SSP using an existing SSP Search Database


I  have an issue with my existing (default) SSP which has led to me creating a new (second) SSP. Eventually, once I have changed all of the associations to the second SSP, this will become my default with the original being deleted.

Is it possible for me to use my Search Database from my first SSP and use this with my second, thus negating the need for me to re-crawl all d my content, re-create scopes and crawl rules etc? When I created the second SSP, I tried pointing this (using the 'New SSP' UI) at the existing database but was told that 'the database is not empty' - therefore, I had to create a new one.

So, as things stand, by having a new Search Database, I will be forced to re-crawl all of my content databases meaning a significant outage in terms of applications being indexable.

Is there a way for ASP.Net Ajax content to be indexed by Search Engine?


Hi All,

Is there a way for content that is dynamically generated by Ajax to be indexed by Search Engine e.g. Google, Bing or Yahoo

As far as i know their crawlers are not able to execute Javascript.

Google seems to have implemented something. Does Bing have something similar?



SharePoint's Search Engine


I had a student ask me this question yesterday and I haven't found any concrete information on it yet.  So...does anyone know what search engine (if any) SharePoint 2010's search functionality is based on?  Is there a search engine out there that's comparable?  My student would ultimately like to know if it's possible to extend SharePoint 2010's search with an auto-complete type of functionality.

Thank you,

Eric Skaggs
