The Bing Search Adapter models the Bing Search API as a relational database that can be queried with SQL. This enables standards-based access from third-party tools.
This chapter describes the view behavior and provides examples of how to search Bing with SQL. Views are tables that cannot be modified. Typically, read-only data are shown as views. View schemas are defined in simple, text-based configuration files. The returned records are limitated to 1000 records per query. This limitation has been set because the Bing Search API usually starts returning duplicate records when this number of records is reached.
