Google is using Adobe Systems’ Search Engine SDK technology, a new set of optimization opportunities opened up.
Who should use the Macromedia Flash Search Engine SDK?’
- he Macromedia Flash Search Engine SDK is designed for search engine application engineering teams. Users of the SDK can add Flash file decompression, parsing, and indexing features to their server-based search applications.
Intermediate and advanced Flash developers may find the SDK useful for other server-based text and link extraction/conversion purposes, or for client-side testing of their Flash content against the basic Macromedia Flash Search Engine SDK code.
- How does the Macromedia Flash Search Engine SDK work?
- The SDK includes an application named ‘swf2html’. Swf2html extracts text and links from a Flash .SWF file, and returns the data to stdout or as an HTML document. Swf2html is provided as a compiled application, and as a static library for linked library implementation. For complete functionality, see the file Readme.htm included in the SDK.
- What is included in the Macromedia Flash Search Engine SDK?
- Included in the Macromedia Flash Search Engine SDK are the following:
- swf2html executable files, for command-line implementation
- libswf2html static libraries, for linked library implementation
- zlib decompression library for decompressing Flash Player 6 files that have been compressed
