next step after creating a Verity collection is to populate it with
indexed data. Populating a Verity collection is accomplished with the
CFINDEX tag. With the
tag, ColdFusion can index data from a number of sources including
numerous file types and query results from any ColdFusion query. What
this means is that you can use the
CFINDEX tag to
index everything from HTML files and word-processed documents, to
relational databases, LDAP directories, and POP mail accounts.
great thing about bundling Verity’s search technology with
ColdFusion is that you can build applications capable of searching a
wide range of document types including both text and binary formats.
Here are the file types capable of being indexed by
HTML, CFML, ANSI, ASCII, SGML, XML, and plain text
