This Example shows a search system for PDF files stored on different PCs.
The idea of this application goes as following:
1- It's a PDF library which allows users to search the metadata of PDF files very fast.
2- Administrator can add new files to the library.
3-When added, file metadata (title,subject,author, bookmarks..etc.) is stored in a central database.
4- User searches for files by querying the database only. To view a file user connects the file host.
