Too my knowledge you can only search one Java Ranch forum at a time. This is unusable when you want to search for something like 'Object[][]' that may span many forums. The sun java forum has a much better search that allows you to search all forums at once.

Steve,
The current software only supports searching one forum at a time. Note that you can use Google to search all the forums at once. Go to the advanced search page and specify the domain "javaranch.com"

Or rather, the current software has an option to allow searching all forums, but when we turn it on, the load on the server is too much. It's just not a very efficient search. See the FAQ for this and similar questions.
