A collection of information is called a source. Each source has a type that identifies where the information is stored, such as on a Web site or in a database table. Oracle SES provides several built-in source types and an architecture for adding new types.
Additionally, Oracle SES provides access to more third-party data repositories than any other enterprise search engine, without requiring you to generate any additional coding. While these data sources are classified as user-defined source types, they are available as the built-in source types. This guide organizes these user-defined source types into content management sources, collaboration sources, and applications sources.
Oracle SES also provides authorization cache sources for facilitating access to secure data.
E-mail: Derives content from e-mails sent to a specific e-mail address. When Oracle SES crawls an e-mail source, it collects e-mail from all folders set up in the e-mail account, including Drafts, Sent Items, and Trash e-mails.
Federated: Enables you to share content across multiple Oracle SES instances.
Content Management Sources
EMC Documentum Content Server
Microsoft SharePoint 2007
Oracle Content Database
Oracle Content Database (JDBC)
Oracle Content Server (formerly Stellent Content Server)
You may need to install client libraries and obtain a license from the vendor for some content sources to work. For example, EMC Documentum requires installation of a compatible version of Documentum Foundation Classes (DFC), which is a Java library, on the computer running Oracle SES. Oracle SES does not ship with DFC.
