Let me search the Oracle documentation for you!


You sometimes get questions that are easily answered by a Google search, so you give people a link to lmgtfy.com, like this.


As a homage to lmgtfy.com I’ve created a documentation search.


If you specify your search it gives you a URL you can pass to others. When they use the URL it shows them what they could have done rather than bug you. 🙂


Update: It now uses TinyURL, like this http://tinyurl.com/yamsmc2

It’s a little basic to look at, but it made me laugh. 🙂

  1. Joel:

    I’m just using the jQuery animate() function to change the “left” and “top” settings of an image. Nothing magical. jQuery is very easy. 🙂

    If you download the search.js file you will see my code. It’s my first jQuery code, so sorry if it’s a mess. 🙂

    The other two Javascript libraries are the jQuery library and a plugin to handle the querystring. Pretty simple stuff.



  2. Nice; it’d be even more better if there was a link to tinyurl (or some other url shortener), and perhaps a handy little url (like letmegooglethatforyou.com has…) to remember the link more easily.

    But I shall *definitely* be using this, especially on the OTN forums!

    (PS. the link to your Oracle AceD page on the “About Me” page is pointing to Steven Feuerstein – deliberate error or not?! (the 43 at the end should be 41, I think)
