Range of Query Types
ISYS:publisher enables users to perform full-text searches on your publication
using plain English, menu-assisted or command-based queries.
ISYS does not require you to laboriously define thousands of hypertext
links before your data becomes useful. You can make use of powerful
ISYS features such as dynamic hypertext to make your information come
alive in the hands of your readers without spending hundreds of hours
pasting in static hypertext links. You can also manually create links
between documents and web pages.
Index Optimization Before publishing your documents and indexes, ISYS can optimize
your data for maximum performance and minimum disk space in your finished
The CD-ROM optimization feature of ISYS lets index publishers specifically
rebuild and optimize ISYS indexes for CD-ROM usage, resulting in a 50%
decrease in I/O during query and retrieval. This can result in queries
running more than two times as fast.
Index Compression ISYS indexes are already in a highly compact format. By optimizing
your indexes and utilizing document compression, you can ensure that
your indexes take up the least space possible. ISYS handles zipped files
easily - it can index and browse zipped documents without having to
extract the contents.
ISYS:publisher allows you to encrypt your data, so that only subscribing
users with a distributed copy of the ISYS engine can use your publication.
Each index can be locked so that only users who have been provided with
a digital 'key' can use each index. Lock your entire publication or
parts of it to limit access to different levels of subscriber.
