    Ultrasearch on IBM Websphere Application Server

    521405
      The requirement is to use Oracle UltraSearch functionality that provides uniform search-and-locate capabilities over multiple repositories.

      Existing Environment in Our System
      IBM Websphere Application Server in Solaris
      Oracle9i database

      1. Whether Ultrasearch will work with IBM Websphere Application Server in Solaris or it is only compatible with Oracle9iAS?

      2. Currently UltraSearch is not installed in our system. Whether separate patches can be downloaded and installed for UltraSearch?

      3. If it is possible in Websphere, What are the java jar files to be installed in Ultraserach in IBM Websphere Application Server.
      Pls mention the file names.

      4.Whether ultrasearch is enough if it is installed in oracle DB server alone or it should be installed in application server also.

      5.Whether OPCA (Oracle Portal Configuration Assistant) from a middle tier(I think only 9iAS has this, what about Websphere?) is required
      to install Ultrasearch DB packages into Database.

      6. From Ultra Search administration tool, whether all the activities related to Ultrasearch configuration changes can be performed?

          Ultra Search isn't only compatible with OAS. No idea if you can use it with IBM Websphere... The configuration is quite simple, just try to do it...
          2. Currently UltraSearch is not installed in our
          system. Whether separate patches can be downloaded
          and installed for UltraSearch?
          Ultra Search is installed and patched with the database.
          3. If it is possible in Websphere, What are the java
          jar files to be installed in Ultraserach in IBM
          Websphere Application Server.
          Pls mention the file names.
          There is an installation guide that describes what you are looking for. Read it.
          4.Whether ultrasearch is enough if it is installed in
          oracle DB server alone or it should be installed in
          application server also.
          In 9i you have to install an application server to deploy the query and administration interface. With 10g such installation is no more necessary.
          5.Whether OPCA (Oracle Portal Configuration
          Assistant) from a middle tier(I think only 9iAS has
          this, what about Websphere?) is required
          to install Ultrasearch DB packages into
          into Database.
          I never worked with OPCA. Anyway, Ultra Search is a database feature, therefore you don't need other products (except for the query and administration interface).
          6. From Ultra Search administration tool, whether all
          the activities related to Ultrasearch configuration
          changes can be performed?
          Most of them. But not all.

            Can Ultra search configured to Search Sharepoint sites? I've been trying to configure the ultra search to access and search sharepoint sites, but failed. Not sure if this is possible.
