Query Application Quick Tour

In a basic text query application, users enter query words or phrases and expect the application to return a list of documents that best match the query. Such an application involves creating a CONTEXT index and querying it with CONTAINS.

Typically, query applications require a user interface. An example of how to build such a query application using the CONTEXT index type is given in CONTEXT Query Application.

The examples in this section provide the basic SQL statements to load the text table, index the documents, and query the index.
