    google search for offline site????

    Hi,

    i work for a company that provide a large platform to the education sector. The service I work on is new and written in Java. It's very good.
    However the company also provide an older service which is written in perl....it has a search function that basically does not work. For some reason development of this sdervice say that it will take a years worth of developemtnto create a new search.
    Being a server side programmer myself I find this hard to believe.

    Anyways I was looking for a quick alternative fot the interim and was wondering hoping that might be something like a google search we could use for the site.

    I know you can power your search using the google engine but the difference here is that these pages are essentially offline and run on pricate networks.

    Does anyone know if google search can be used in this way?

    HI,

    That looks promising you know but our contehnt is completely offline. There si no connection to the internet at all. Does this work with that. I can't see any concrete litreature supporting this.

    AFAIK they will just plug into a LAN and can search local content with no internet connection.

    Hi sky. Thanks for the reply. It looks like the google hardware plugs into the
    Local network. We need something that's centralized. This requires hardware everywhere you want to use google search.
