Federated Search Implementer’s Guide Updated
Hope you’re all enjoying the Windows 7 RC!
This week we published an update to the Federated Search Implementer’s Guide. This update includes some new information as well as some corrections to the original document. Most crucially, the original document erroneously indicated that the URL template contained an attribute called “format” – when it was referring to the “type” attribute. So if you followed the guide exactly, your OSDX file wouldn’t work properly with Windows 7 (or anybody else following the OpenSearch spec).
This update also includes additions such as information about providing “collection” templates to display results without the user entering a query, details about URL protocol support, and more.
