How to make xml data searchable?

Vote:
 
We are recieving content of pressreleases for a site by XML and we would like to make the content searchable inside EPiServer, is this possible? We have built an aspx-file that receive an identifier for the specific pressrelease as a querystring and then loads the content from an external xml-source and then outputs the loaded content on the page. Should we cache the data in some way so it becomes searchable and in that case what is the best way to do that?

If you're using a "real" search engine that crawl your site the information should be included unless you iframe it. If you're using episerver search there is no way to include those pressreleases unless you save each release as an epipage. Most people wouldn't want to create new epi-pages like that so the solution but if the place you get the pressreleases from has a search service you could modify your sites search to also issue the same search at the pressrelease provider and link the hits from there to your own site (you mentioned some id-thing). Another solution to avoid creating epi-pages is to store the press-releases in a SQL-table, activate free-text search and again modify the search-page to also search your SQL-table.
