Has anyone integrated FV or FU with a fulltext search engine?

We would like to have true fulltext search.  We can see how this might be accomplished, but if someone has already done this would be interested to hear about the approach.

Just FYI - my firm has integrated FV with dtSearch successfully.  Seems like this would be generally useful to have as part of the core product, since dtSearch is a quite commonly used search engine.

I'd be interested to hear more about how you did this.  The lack of full-text and recursive search in FV is our main deterrence to using this product.

I will work on some general notes - but ideally we'd like to get this into the product. At a very high level, we modified the code to log file add/move/deletes to a database, then created a back-end windows service to monitor that database and update the dtSearch index using dtSearch API. Conceptually not too difficult, but required 2-4 weeks of work by experienced C# developers. Perhaps we can prevail upon Cem to add dtSearch support to product :-)

Mark, do you have some source code or a GitHub? Is this already integrated into FileUltimate or FileVista?

Thanks.

I am interested in this too, and then I can concentrate on programming other things. Is any code available. I also need a service to monitor files on disk when accessed via other channels SFTP
