About Us

We're a small, distributed team specialized in search and information retrieval.

JObjects.com started in 1997 with a simple cross-platform search engine project known today as QuestAgent. Those days we created our own proprietary search engine and PDF parser from the scratch. Today, we leverage the power of open source projects like Apache Lucene and Solr to build more sophisticated information retrieval solutions.

QuestAgent is used with different kinds of electronic publications, from CD’s with conference materials to offline databases to product manuals distributed online.
