FAST has released a set of installable Web parts (Web parts are reusable UI components for building SharePoint sites) for quickly integrating FAST ESP with SharePoint Server 2007. These Web parts allow SharePoint administrators to build ESP-based search sites inside SharePoint Server 2007 by simply dropping in and configuring the appropriate components.
The web parts not been released through a formal channel, but are rather available through a CodePlex project, which can be accessed here http://www.codeplex.com/espwebparts
This is the first step in technically integrating this high-end Fast ESP product (which Microsoft recently acquired as part of the company Fast acquisition) with SharePoint. In future blog posts we will detail information on Fast ESP and it's positioning with the rest of the Microsoft Enterprise Search offerings.
The following components have been released through the CodePlex project:
Happy Playing...if you know Fast ESP and SharePoint ;-)
