R – Using Microsoft Search Server 2008 with asp.net/vb.net

asp.netsearchsharepointvb.net

I'm installing Microsoft Search Server 2008 express with a view to indexing some content for an intranet application.

Having not used Search Server before, i am looking at ways of my asp.net app (.net 3.5) querying the search server.

I'm just starting to look into Search Community Toolkit to see if it is relevant to what i want to achieve. But was wondering if you guys can point me in the right direction (code, articles, etc).

Many Thanks.

Microsoft provides developer APIs. The assemblies are part of the Search Server 2008 SDK.
