Published by Wiley

Written by three of the most recognized influencers in theMicrosoft SharePoint community, this book sheds light on SharePointSearch in the enterprise and focuses solely on Microsoft Searchtechnology. This book is intended for a range of folks from the ITadministrator to the developer writing search applications. We spanmany topics in this book to try to cover the breadth of using,administering, and developing on the SharePoint Searchtechnologies. The developer chapters will be important for theadministrator to understand, since developers and administratorshave to work together to make Search work. On the flip side, theadministrator chapters will be important for developers tounderstand the architecture and administration of Search because,without this knowledge, writing to the APIs will be more difficult.Most readers will benefit from reading all the chapters in thisbook.

This book covers the breadth of the SharePoint Searchtechnologies from Search Server to Windows SharePoint Services toOffice SharePoint Server. We also include information on the latestsearch technologies coming from Microsoft, including the newfederation capabilities, filter pack, and the recently acquiredFAST technologies.

This book is structured in such a way that you can read it fromend to end. The chapters are laid out in such a way that they buildon each other, starting with an overview chapter and ending with anAPI chapter that shows you how to program against all thetechnology about which you just learned. If you are new toSharePoint, the first few chapters will be important for you tounderstand and digest before moving on, since the array of searchtechnologies can be overwhelming for someone new to them. Forexperienced SharePoint readers, the overview chapters are a goodrefresher to skim through, but you probably can skip right to thedetailed chapters, starting with Chapter 3, Planning and Deployingan Enterprise Search Solution.

The topics covered include:

Introduction to Enterprise Search.

Overview of Microsoft Enterprise Search Products.

Planning and Deploying an Enterprise Search Solution.

Configuring and Administering Search.

Searching LOB Systems with the BDC.

User Profiles and People Search.

Extending Search with Federation.

Securing Your Search Results.

Customizing the Search Experience.

Understanding and Tuning Relevance.

Building Applications with the Search API and Web Services.

To get the most from this book, you will want a copy of OfficeSharePoint Server. Windows SharePoint Services or Search Serverwill work, but you will not have access to all the searchcapabilities we talk about in the book. One easy way to get anevaluation copy of SharePoint is to download the SharePoint virtualmachine from MSDN. You can find a link to the virtual machine onthe SharePoint home page at www.microsoft.com/office/sharepoint.This virtual machine, while large, is preconfigured for you so thatyou can start working with the SharePoint Search technologieswithout having to install all the software and configure it.
