      Microsoft Search Server 2008 provides you with the ability to include items from content repositories that are not indexed by the search server’s crawler through federated locations. Search Server 2008 supports federating search from the local search index, as well as sites that support the OpenSearch 1.0 or 1.1 standard and returns search results in a structured XML format (for example, RSS or Atom results).
      To include federated search results from other types of content repositories, you must create a federated connector. When the repository does not expose a searchable XML feed, this federated connector must include an interface to expose results from the repository. The interface must support querying via OpenSearch and return XML formatted results.
