Yes, I highly recommend a service application with a TIB_FTS_Sync component
using an open connection to listen for events. If you do this then as soon
as your transactions are committed it will respond to event alerters and
bring the search engine up to where it should be.

I was wondering if you needed it to work such that full text searching
worked inside of the transaction context prior to calling commit. If that is
the case then I have more work to do to get it to work that way.
