Post a question on freedb forum "licenese on search on freedb data" June 09 2005,21:44 Last Post by: chrislu From megari in freedb.org With proper attribution and by publishing the imported database you should be fine. We're not very strict about this as long as the intention is clearly to keep all changes public and not misrepresenting the source of the data. So should be allowed to make such a search (which you already have) if you provide a way to download the converted database and link back to freedb and the GPL. I've seen your news submission and I'm a bit uneasy about publishing it - especially because joerg is on vacation which prevents me from discussing this with him. To me it looks like an advertisement for your product. I understand you are anxious about letting everyone know about it, but we prefer not to advertise. Perhaps you could rephrase the submission and move some of the advertising to the search page itself? That way we could just say in the news post that you've made a search page to demonstrate your technology without going into detail. People would test your technology and should they be impressed, they may follow a link from the search result page to the DBSight main page. Revised, Posted: June 10th, 2005 DBSight demo full-text search on freedb database To demonstrate the search capability, DBSight created a demo search on 1.7 million CD albums infomation by freedb.org provided data. http://search.dbsight.com/ Major difference with existing search is: Search highlighting, categorized result counts, etc. The data will be updated when freedb.org has new data available. 3. For MySql full-text FAQ page http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/fulltext-search.html Posted by Grant Harrison on June 9 2005 10:44pm [Delete] [Edit] Maybe a little off topic here. Alternatively, instead of doing all full-text search within MySql database, you can pull data out and create an index on it. It's a much faster search. I am using DBSight to search on 1.7million records of 1.2G data, on a P3 450MHz, 256MRam, with sub-second performance. Taking search out of database also give you capability to customize stemmer. 4. sent to editor0406 at searchtools dot com, on Jun 9th, 2005, 2pm sent to consult4 at searchtools dot com, on Jun 16th, 2005 Hi, I am a Developer Manager of DBSight.com DBSight is a deployable j2EE web application that can create one or several search engine on any JDBC relational databases.

You add your own logo, change the layout, and add/remove components -- all by web UI. You can render the search results similar to Google or Yahoo style, or render them like product catalog, or results that fit for mobile phones, or, if you prefer, directly jump to the most relevant match.
