Using the following Ex Libris open interfaces: xserver
Release notes: Initial version.
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="http://www.yourserver.com/tomcat/external_search.jsp"><input type="text" name="request" /><input type="submit" value="Go" /></form>
