Thanks. Does the same apply for Lucene?
i have not used Lucene, but i would assume it does apply to it, too.
Verity-like collections are just that - collections of
documents/references/data. They will search their collections' contents
based on user input, but they do not natively integrate with any
specific db or other storage engine - you have to capture user input and
store it separately if you need to. If I am totally wrong about this
someone will correct me.
In any case, capturing user input is very simple to implement: you
probably have a form with a search box for users to search your
collections - just save user input in the db before performing cfsearch.
You can even extend it further to check if a user has actually typed
anything in the search box and perform cfsearch only when there is a
valid user input, and display a "Please enter your search phrase"
iirc, there are also ways to check what cfsearch actually searched for,
but exact implementation of that with Verity skips my mind right now...
