Federated search is a useful feature which allows users to search remote data sources from within Windows Explorer and to interact with that remote data from within Windows Explorer. Microsoft has included this feature in its new Windows 7 using OpenSearch technologies. To explain better the Federated Search features and to showcase the developers how to take advantage of this new feature and build a web-based data source that can be searched using Windows federated search, Microsoft has lately released a Windows 7 Federated Search Provider Implementer’s Guide to help developers build a web-based data source that can be searched using Windows Federated Search.
