No blog would be complete with out an article on how to use Google search more effectively. All the instructions are on the Google site so I thought I would talk through some of the more advanced search techniques. I was recently searching for information on
OpenSessionInViewInterceptor. There wasn’t much out there. I needed to narrow my search to just the Spring Reference. So here comes the first tip:
site:static.springframework.org OpenSessionInViewInterceptorThis limits all the results to entries which are at the website http://static.springframework.org/. The search was throwing back loads of links to the API documentation so, I needed to restrict the results again to the reference section:
site:static.springframework.org inurl:reference OpenSessionInViewInterceptorThis was now giving me results for all the versions. Next I needed to reduce the search down to include the version number. Google only lets you have 1 colon’ed option per type, so:
site:static.springframework.org inurl:reference inurl:2.5 OpenSessionInViewInterceptorreturns nothing! You must join them together:
site:static.springframework.org inurl:(reference and 2.5) OpenSessionInViewInterceptor
