LIS 523 - Java Search Engine
This page is designed to demonstrate
the use of a Java applet
to provide a simple search engine
for the course Web site.
If you do not see a search box below,
Java is probably disabled or not installed
in your browser.
The applet may fail to display the results page
if the number of items retrieved is too large.
This deficiency is probably due to the fact that the results
are passed to the results page
as part of the URL.
Internet Explorer limits URLs to 2048 bytes.
Enter the words you'd like to search for in the search box,
separating them with spaces or commas.
To search for a phrase,
place the phrase between double quotes.
- Check "Exact matches only"
if you want to match only whole words
(for example, if you want a search on "Java"
- Uncheck "Exclude HTML"
only if you want to match words between angle brackets
in the HTML source code
(for instance, if you are looking for a page
that contains the SCRIPT tag).
- Uncheck "Require all terms"
if you want all the words ORed
rather than ANDed.
For the list of files covered by the search,
see the file files.txt.
(Java applet supplied by
independent student paper of Gilbert High School, Iowa, USA.)
