Dieselpoint, a provider of search software, has announced the next version of Dieselpoint Search, which is designed to provide an all-Java solution to the problem of finding information in documents, databases, and XML. New features for Dieselpoint Search 3.0, include: a new graphical administrative interface that makes it easy to add, modify, and query indexes; a new "forced rankings" feature makes it easier to tweak relevance ranking and ensure that results are presented in the desired order; and new crawler and scheduler features provide enhanced control.
Dieselpoint Search enables both search and navigation. It uses structured and semi-structured data where it exists--in database fields, XML tags, and document metadata--to build menus for users to follow, suggestions for where to go next, and options to narrow or broaden a search. Dieselpoint Search is priced starting at $9,995 per CPU licensing fee. Because the product is written entirely in Java, it runs under all major Java application servers and is portable across platforms. A fully functional version of Dieselpoint 3.0 is available for download online.
