Yahoo! Search BOSS V2 launched in April this year, has received a few updates to the service today.
The update includes:
- Control your daily usage limits
Starting next wek, developers can specify a daily dollar limit for your service consumption. Of course, you can change that limit at any time and can make any combination of queries before hitting that limit. Learn more here on how to set this up.
- HTTPS support for even more security
Y! now allow to use all the goodness of BOSS with HTTPS.
- BOSS + SQL, BOSS + YQL
We've hence upgraded BOSS mashup to work with V2, which allows for SQL type querying for the service. As shown in this example about 15 lines of code, you can put together a complete News module. You can also use a user created YQL table with BOSS V2. Download sample mashup code or start using YQL. Your search made relational.
