Verity Query Language Search

Topics in this Section

If you upgraded to IDOL server from a Verity installation, you can continue to use Verity Query Language (VQL) by entering it as the query text and adding VQL=true to the query string.
For example:
http://IDOLhost:port/action=Query&Text=cat <AND> dog&VQL=true
This query returns only documents that contain both cat and dog.
http://IDOLhost:port/action=Query&Text=red <NEAR/1> green&VQL=true
This query returns only documents in which the term red is adjacent to the term green. This query returns documents that contain red green, green red or green and red (and is a stop word and therefore ignored), while documents that contain red orange green do not return (because the terms are not close enough to each other).
NOTE If you execute a VQL query, you cannot include the FieldText parameter in the query.
