Verity Inc. announced the availability of Verity Ultraseek release 5.2. The new version incorporates five new features that improve upon the product’s search relevance capability and end-user experience and make it easier to integrate into a wide range of application environments with a new Web Services interface. Existing portal, content management and other applications based on BEA, Vignette, TIBCO or IBM WebSphere can now have search capabilities added with pre-built Verity portlets. JavaScript spidering capabilities have been added to Verity Ultraseek’s spider indexes that can turn document types and file formats spread across the typical enterprise into a single body of intellectual capital that is searchable with a single query. Verity Ultraseek’s ability to automatically highlight query terms within documents has been expanded to include formats such as Microsoft Word and Excel through inclusion of Verity KeyView Export. The Verity Ultraseek architecture supports most enterprise operating systems, from Windows to UNIX and Linux.
