XRS: A New XML Search Engine

I am pleased to announce my XML indexing and retrieval engine named XRS to you. XRS is the most recent result among those which I have been developing in SGML/XML framework for a couple of years.
Highlights of XRS are:
A very flexible retrieval capability:
- any elements in DTD can be retrieved
- You can give the weights to elements according to the importance you consider in retrieval
- With easy query building tool, you can create a structured query quickly.
Efficient indexing and retrieval
- With BUS technique I devised, indexing overhead is minimized with preserving quick retrieval time.
With a servlet and multi-thread safe native C library, the overhead in server side is reduced.
- It is not CGI!
XML source is transformed to HTML and sent to your browser.
- With a browser without XML capability, you can still see the XML results.
