As a heavy user of SQL Server full-text indexing, and Index Server, I would like to see if MySQL could fill a big gap we have had to work around in those technologies. We add about 40,000 new documents to our database every day. In order to quickly index new documents and have them available for searching, we use Index Server, since SQL Server full-text can not get its indexes updated in less than 'hours'. Then after the documents are a few months old, and static, we index them with SQL Server full-text indexes. Our application knows which type of index to search based on the age of the requested documents.

If, when a record is added to a MySQL database, a 'procedure' could be called to force that record to be indexed, the indexes could be kept up-to-date as records are added, and there would be no need to rebuild complete indexes. It seems like this could be like an 'on request' incremental population of the indexes.

Solving this problem would make MySQL a 'no-brainer' replacement for our current system.
