What is Federated Search?


Wikipedia says:


Federated searching consists of (1) transforming a query and
broadcasting it to a group of disparate databases with the
appropriate syntax, (2) merging the results collected from the
databases, (3) presenting them in a succinct and unified format
with minimal duplication, and (4) providing a means,
performed either automatically or by the portal user, to sort
the merged result set.
