OpenSearchServer is a stable, high-performance search engine and a suite of high-powered full text search algorithms. Documents can be indexed in sixteen languages. Multi-lingual analyzers slice sentences into words, then run lemmatisation algorithms on words based on the document's language. Numerous document formats are supported, such as XML, HTML/XHTML, PDF, Word, PowerPoint, RTF, OpenOffice, plain text, MP3/4, Ogg, FLAC, etc. The Web interface, built around the Zkoss framework, provides an easy way to manage OSS. The integration is fast using the PHP client or the API (XML over HTTP). The crawlers of OpenSearchServer go through Web sites, file systems, and databases to rapidly and easily build your index.
The Ex-Crawler Project is divided into three subprojects. The main part is the Ex-Crawler daemon server, a highly configurable and flexible Web crawler written in Java. It comes with its own socket server, with which you can manage the server, users, distributed grid/volunteer computing, and much more. Crawled information is stored in a database (Currently MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MSSQL are supported). The second part is a graphical (Java Swing) distributed grid/volunteer computing client, including user computer state detection, based on JADIF Project. The Web search engine is written in PHP. It comes with a Content Management System, user language detection and multi-language support, and templates using Smarty, including an application framework that is partly forked from Joomla 1.5, so that Joomla components can be adapted quickly.
