Release notes: Initial version.

Installation instructions
Install this jsp on a tomcat instance. I would recommend installing it on your own tomcat instead of re-using the Digitool internal one.

You can use different search parameters, or add base parameters to the search

string.String url = global_xserver + "X?op=find&adjacent=n&base=" + param_base + "&session=" + param_session + "&request=" + param_request;

Calling the jsp from an external page is as easy as using the following code:

<form method="post" action=""><input type="text" name="request" /><input type="submit" value="Go" /></form>
