hi all,

i am not sure whether this is the right forum. fi this is not/or there is a better forum for this topc, please tell me.

anyway, i want to create an application that automaticaly return me results when someone typed something related to my company. Since I am doing this for my company so i will only pay attention to specific keywords. ie. productx sucks. productx rocks.
because i am still in my initial stage, i am not sure where should i be looking at . right now, i thought that natural language processing is something that i need to look for. Anybody got opinion on this?

however, i googled and found out that natural language processing is a big and complex thing and i didn't want my application to be big and complex. i just want soemthing that is simple and easy to use. I think it's not very possible to get a robot to process human language. but i am going to try anyway. So, i need some advice here.any advice will definitely be welcome.


thanks javarancher!

Have you had a look at powerful search libraries? Something like Lucene might do the trick for you here.

Which information sources do you want to evaluate - anything that's on the web? If so, automated Google searches might be the way to go; Google has a web service API for that.

If it's a more specialized source you may have to write your own indexing and search code; as Martijn said, something like Lucene can help greatly with that.

I wouldn't think that you need to do much complex natural language processing, but I may be missing something about the problem.
