    Unanswered: Verity Enhanced Full Text Search (EFTS)

    Hi all,

    I have some very simple questions for anybody using the Verity EFTS packet supplied with Sybase 11.9.2 and configured to use english.
    Does a stem seacrch for america also find american?
    Does england find english?
    Does iraq find iraqi?
    Does take find taken or took?

    All of these searches I do on my testbed here only finds the search word and not the stems and the vendor is saying that that's the best it can do.

    thanks

    John Daqck

    Here's the full-text datastore web URL:

    The 11.9.2 docs are online somewhere, but the 12.5 manual should work well.
    Thanks,

    Matt

    Hiya,

    There were issues on stem search in EFTS on 11.9.2

    Believe these were addressed in some EBF later in that release. You could also test this using the 12.5 EFTS which should have the resolution.

    Cheers

    Many thanks, MattR and willy_and_the_ci. I will try out your suggestions.

    But can anyone answer the questions:-
    should a stem search for america also find american?
    should england find english?
    should iraq find iraqi?
    should take find taken or took?

    Once again, many thanks

    Yes, that's exactly stem search feature is available in Verity EFTS.
