Oracle is doing a lot of press releases at the moment. First they bought Sleepycat (Berkeley DB) and now they try to attack Google.com? I watched the demo of Oracle Secure Enterprise Search and I must admit the web interface looks very familiar to me :-).
I am wondering if that new product is somewhat related to YAPA the Oracle Text demo from OTN. May be YAPA is the predecessor of SES? A crawler/spider component could also be found as an demo on OTN called Indagine.
On the other hand, it is more likely that SES is the continuation of TripleHop MatchPoint which Oracle bought in June 2005.
