About a week ago I got involved with a question via Twitter that was posted originally to Stack Exchange. The question was "Is it possible to list document properties via FTS"? The question refers to SQL Server 2012's new support or property-based Read More...
I've often asked about add-ins for SQL Server Full-Text Search feature. And the most requested feature for FTS has long been some way to accomodate hit highlighting. Recently, I've come across a beta for a product that does just this, along with Read More...
