21 Search Extensibility.NET enabled Search –Managed-code query provider and admin API –Search web service for remote applications Simple keyword or full-text SQL support Customization of search web parts using Visual Studio.NET –Search results web part is used across many SPS V2 portal features Word breaker interface published in Platform SDK
