The ATG platform includes several form handlers that you can use to build forms for issuing queries to ATG Search. These forms are useful for searching ATG repository data that has been indexed by ATG Search, but they are not restricted to this type of data. In fact, they can be used for searching any data indexed by ATG Search. It is therefore possible to use these form handlers to build a wide variety of user interfaces to ATG Search, and to make the full power of the ATG platform available for working with ATG Search data.

Note that this chapter discusses a large number of ATG platform and ATG Search classes and components. In some cases you may want more detail than is provided here. For more information about the classes described here, see the ATG API Reference.
