Hi,

I want to be able to use the FTS module in sqlite to do leverage the powerful full text capability in it. But I was sad to learn that module are disabled in AIR (Has anybody gotten FTS module to work in AIR?)

Is there any way I can use the FTS module with SQLite. Android native developers use this all the time so I think not having this is a serious limitation for text based apps.

My alternatives right now are to:

  • Write my own indexer and scorer (lots of work)
  • Do full text search on the server side (breaks offline capability)

I hate both options. I am leaning toward righting my own indexer but what do you guys suggest I do?

I've got nearly the same concern. I want to add full text search on a mobile and desktop application, without any server.

I read in archived discussion that the FTS support was already considered before air 2.0.

Will we see it soon?
