h1. ManifoldCF in Action


No matter how exciting a search engine might be, it's worthless unless it has data to index.
ManifoldCF is an open source framework for pulling content out of a repository and sending
it on to targets such as Solr via a plug-in style, connector-based architecture. ManifoldCF
includes connectors for numerous commercial and open source data sources, including Documentum,
SharePoint, JDBC, and RSS.


[ManifoldCF in Action|] is a comprehensive tutorial and reference
that shows you how to integrate search with enterprise-level document repositories using ManifoldCF.
The book begins with an architectural overview of ManifoldCF and how it fits into your application
infrastructure. After covering the basics, it dives into examples showing typical integration
tasks, such as setting up connections, using ManifoldCF as an engine under the control of
another enterprise system, and integrating ManifoldCF's user-based security model with a search


Although ManifoldCF provides connectors for a large number of repositories and search technologies,
including Solr, FileNet, Windows shares, JDBC, Documentum, Meridio, and SharePoint, there
are many for which no ManifoldCF connector yet exists. As you explore the ManifoldCF architecture,
you'll learn how ManifoldCF interacts with individual connectors so that you can design your
own custom connectors.
