Professional Microsoft Search: SharePoint 2007 and Search Server 2008 sheds light on SharePoint Search in the enterprise and focuses solely on Microsoft Search technology. This book is intended for a range of folks from the IT administrator to the developer writing search applications. The book tries to cover the breadth of using, administering, and developing on the SharePoint Search technologies. The developer chapters will be important for the administrator to understand, since developers and administrators have to work together to make Search work. On the flip side, the administrator chapters will be important for developers to understand the architecture and administration of Search because, without this knowledge, writing to the APIs will be more difficult. Most readers will benefit from reading all the chapters in this book
