I have a Sqlserver database with blobs
Some of the blobs are images, but the majority are MSWord documents or pdf documents
I am looking for a solution to search text (keyphrases) within these blobs
A possible solution could be a utility that would extract the blobs to a temporary directory during night time, then we could use Index server, google desktop or similar component to build an index of keywords present in the text and we would populate appropriate new tables in Sqlserver
A commercial programs is an other acceptable solution (we can buy a licence). I would need help to put it in place.
We are using Sqlserver2000 - no immediate plans to upgrade
Any programming must be done in either TSql or VBnet. We prefer MS components (I am very reluctant to use MySql for example)
The solution must be Sqlserver compatible (ie: it must be easy to call it from Sqlserver so as to integrate the search with other functions/fields...) a web service could be acceptable too
