askSam Systems is now shipping a software
development kit (SDK) for its popular free-form
database engine. The askSam SDK allows developers
to incorporate the full-text search and free-form
database capabilities of askSam in applications
that they create.
Unlike structured databases, the askSam database
engine does not require pre-defined structures or
tables. It provides a flexible platform for dealing
with both structured and unstructured data. askSam
does not require structure (fields) in documents
stored in the database. It can search and manipulate
free-form data as well as structured (fielded) data.
askSam can recognize structure in documents as fields.
For example, when email messages are stored in the
askSam database, askSam can use the words To:, From:,
Date:, and Subject: as fields.
askSam also boasts extremely fast and powerful
search capabilities. It indexes all data stored
in the database and allows full-text searches for
any word or phrase. In addition, askSam supports
a wide array of searches including searches of specific
fields, Boolean searches, date searches, as well
as proximity searches.
The askSam database engine is especially well-suited
for applications dealing with unstructured data,
data with differing formats, or data that needs
to be quickly and easily searched, for example applications
that organize email, medical records, legal texts,
resumes, imaged or scanned documents, as well as
document management applications. The askSam engine
supports standalone, multi-user, and Web-based applications.
The askSam SDK supports development in Visual Basic,
ASP, C#, C++, and .NET. It includes sample application
code for all of these languages. ___________________________________________________________
