Querying eDOCS SearchServer Full-Text Search Engine From Perlby Jim (Curate)
|on Jan 13, 2008 at 21:08 UTC||Need Help??|
Jim has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Have any of my brethren used Perl or the Perl DBI with eDOCS SearchServer (formerly known as both Hummingbird SearchServer and PCDOCS/Fulcrum SearchServer)? If so, can you please share your experience with me?
I know about DBD::SearchServer. It's old and unmaintained. The documentation states it was last tested with SearchServer version 3.5, which is ancient. I'm running SearchServer version 5.3 (which is also old) under Microsoft Windows and can neither find a binary distribution of it nor compile it myself.
I'm able to access SearchServer tables via ODBC using Win32::ODBC, but I would prefer to use the DBI.
I'm really just looking to compare notes with and glean knowledge from anyone who may have used Perl with a modern version of eDOCS SearchServer. Thanks!
