Search Smith

ColdFusion, SQL queries, and, of course, searching

ColdFusion 10 now in public beta

Good news courtesy of Adobe’s ColdFusion blog.

Of particular interest to readers of Search Smith might be the Solr enhancements in ColdFusion 10. The CFSEARCH tag will now support custom fields above and beyond custom1, custom2, etc., and will also have an orderBy attribute for sorting. I take this to mean that not only has Adobe extended the capabilities of the CFSEARCH tag but also removed the comments around the custom field definitions in the default ColdFusion schema.xml file. What is not clear is whether one can search the contents of those custom fields automatically (i.e., without specifying the field name in the query). There are also some limitations.

The Data Import Handler for indexing data from a database also looks interesting.
