Progress in Modern Web Technologies and It´s Use in Searching Methods

Autor: Patrik Plachý, SEFIRA spol. s r.o., Czech Republic



The contemporary library-management systems are becoming very advanced products lately due to ever faster development of the informational technologies. As there are solutions for highly accessibly databases and robust web applications, there is also space for the development of further shell solutions in the middleware – for instance intelligent search methods in unstructured data.

This paper will familiarise you with the latest developments in the area of search applications from the Oracle family, such as Oracle WebCenter Suite, Oracle Content Database and
Secured Enterprise Search. All these technologies can be used for the architecture of the middleware applications built on open standards. These service make it easier for developers to easily create such procedures, which will unify the information and tools to a single place. Enterprise can use Oracle Web Center Suite to quickly create „Enterprise Mashups“made of individual information-access applications, which complement each other like parts of a puzzle.

While these products from the Oracle family are a real novelty in the market, the product ConText CZ/SK, created by company Sefira, brings a very advanced solution to the problem of our languages in fulltext searches and has already lots of successful installations and implementations.
This product builds a Czech/Slovak language shell over the fulltext technologies of company Oracle, which allow searching various text sources in different data formats and can also be stored in many ways. This shell makes its possible to use the Czech/Slovak declension and flexion in the applications based on mathematical language models.
