Verity's integration of search into mixed application environments is intended to simplify with a new Web Services interface available in version 5.2 of Verity Ultraseek, which supports both .NET and J2EE platforms. Existing portal, content management, and other applications based on BEA, Vignette, TIBCO, or IBM WebSphere can now have search capabilities added with new pre-built Verity portlets. For those organizations using the Verity Information Server software, Verity Ultraseek's new Upgrade Wizard provides a migration path and the insinuation of the search engine into their intellectual capital management systems. During the Ultraseek implementation process, Verity Ultraseek automatically detects the Information Server configuration settings and mirrors them in the Ultraseek setup.
Verity Ultraseek's ability to automatically highlight query terms within documents--allowing users to quickly scan retrieved documents to determine whether they contain the desired information--has been expanded to include formats such as Microsoft Word and Excel through inclusion of Verity KeyView Export.
Term highlighting capability, especially useful when dealing with lengthy documents, handles content in any supported language. Verity Ultraseek supports complete grammatical and lexical analysis of multiple languages, including localized interfaces and support for Unicode character sets. Fifteen language modules are available, including Arabic, Chinese, and Japanese.
