Is there any alternative to OmniFind for the IBM i?
In Microsoft SQL Server we have full text search built directly into the database. This affords some very nice possibilities such as immediate indexing upon update/insert so you know the search index is always up to date.
However on the IBM i it is not integrated into the database, and the search indexing is a scheduled affair with the minimum re-index time set to 5 minutes. Meaning the search index can be 5 minutes out of date.
Is there a more real-time solution for IBM i?
Does the 5 minute re-index rebuild the entire index or is it an incremental index?
