Multi-purpose Search Tool Is Like Magic

March 2, 2018

The Internet of things has evolved from an entertaining gimmick to instantly access information to an indispensable tool for daily life.  Search engines like Google and Duckduckgo make searching the Internet simple, but in closed systems like databases and storage silos, searching is still complicated.  Usually, individual systems have their own out-of-the-box search engines, but its accuracy is so-so.  Cloud computing complicates search even more.  Instead of searching just one system, cloud computing requires search software that can handle multiple systems at once.  The search technology is out there, but can it really perform as well as Google or even DuckDuckGo?

The Code Project wrote about a new, multi-faceted search tool in the post, “Multidatabase Text Search Tool.”   Searching text in all files across many systems is one of the most complicated procedures for a search engine, especially if you want accuracy and curated results. That is what DBTextFinder was developed for:

DBTextFinder is a simple tool that helps you to perform a precise search in all the stored procedures, functions, triggers, packages and views code, or a selected subset of them, using regular expressions.Additionally, you can search for a given text in all the text fields of a selected set of tables, using regular expressions too.The application provides connections to MySQL, SQL Server and Oracle servers, and supports remote connections via WCF services. You can easily extend the list of available DBMS writing your own connectors without having to change the application code.

DBTextFinder appears to have it all.  It is programmable, gets along well with other computer languages, and was designed to be user-friendly.  What more could you ask for?
