I am working on a search engine to crawl documents from a Database. The blobs are stored as BytesArray into SQL server 2008 R2. The files types are PDF, Doc and Docx mainly. I have to do that with Fast Search because I will have to customize some queries later.

I configure BCS to be able to crawl my "External Content Type". I don't know how to find the keywords into the files. When I am typing a keyword, I am getting the BCS result and not the documents.

I create my "External Content Type" via Sharepoint Designer and since the creation, I did many Full crawls.

Did someone ever did that?

Looking forward for your answers :)

Documents get indexed at the point of putting them in to a suitable table in the DB. You would only ever search the indexes, not the blobs themselves. – Paul Leigh Mar 26 '12 at 15:29
Thx for your answer, event if I just saw your answer. Indeed the files are crawled and indexed then not used anymore (not until the download). I found the way to do it by using editing the dbcm file created by Sharepoint Designer. – lenny32 May 7 '12 at 17:26
