Oracle Secure Enterprise Search ist verfügbar

Es gibt wieder eine neue Version von OSES, wie immer verfügbar auf OTN. Die Liste der Neuerungen ist lang:

New Features in Release 11.1.2
Many enhancements have been made to the product architecture. In addition, new
features have been added, some controlled by the administrator, and others that can be
configured by the end users.

Architectural Enhancements
■ The Oracle SES midtier has moved from OC4J to Oracle WebLogic Server. This
entails changes to the steps involved in configuring Single Sign-On and SSL. See
Chapter 11, "Security in Oracle Secure Enterprise Search" for more information on
Single Sign-On and SSL configuration.
■ Oracle Text index structure is enhanced to provide faster query response time.
Changes to index structure improves the performance of Oracle Text significantly.
This option is enabled by default in Oracle SES, and results in significant
improvement in the response time of the query engine.
Oracle SES index fragmentation level remains low even with active crawler

Deprecated Connectors
The following connectors are deprecated in this release, so that maintenance will be
provided only when issues are raised by existing customers. No active development,
testing, or certification will be provided for any of these connectors.
■ FileNet Image Server
■ FileNet P8 Content Engine
■ Open Text LiveLink Enterprise Server
■ Hummingbird DM
■ IBM DB2 Content Management

New Features for Administrators
■ You can now use the Administrator API to manage multiple instances of Oracle
SES from a central location. See Oracle Secure Enterprise Search Administration API
Guide for more information.
■ Oracle SES now supports parallel querying and index partitioning. See "Parallel
Query Indexing" on page 4-28. Also see "Parallel Querying and Index Partitioning"
on page 12-13.
■ Space management options have been implemented to enable administrators to set
limits on disk space usage. See "Managing Disk Space Usage" on page 12-1 for
more information.
■ The new Oracle File Change Detector (FCD) significantly reduces the duration of
incremental crawls of NTFS sources. See "Setting Up NTFS Sources for UNIX" on
page 8-14 for more information.
■ OAM based SSO authentication is now available. See "Configuring Secure Search
with OAM Single Sign-On" on page 11-27 for more information.
■ Crawler cache storage in Oracle Database provides a secure, compressed
repository for sensitive information. Caching can be enabled and disabled at the
source level, rather than at the system level. See "Overview of the Oracle Secure
Enterprise Search Crawler" on page 4-1 for more information.

New Features for End Users:
■ It is now possible to customize the UI using template files and skins. See
Chapter 10, "Customizing the Search User Interface" for more information.
■ Attribute filter search option is now available directly from the UI. See
"Configuring the Display Options on the Search Page" on page 3-9 for more

more information.
■ Federated authorization cache further improves performance and reduces

identically configured identity or authorization plug-in. See "Federated User
Authorization Cache" on page 11-12 for more information.

more information.

Enterprise Search Release Notes for other changes in document support.

time-out message from federated sources.

■ Connectors have been added to support Oracle Fusion and Oracle WebCenter. See
Chapter 9, "Configuring Access to Applications Sources" for more information.
