SharePoint and LiveLink Integration: Part 2

This is a continuation of my previous post on SharePoint and LiveLink integration: Part1 where I described how to archive SharePoint documents to LiiveLink. In this post I will tell you how to search LiveLink data through SharePoint.
Searching Livelink Content from a SharePoint Site
The purpose of this is to create a Search Page in SharePoint site which will be used for searching and displaying search results from Livelink. The following steps will tell us how to do it.



1.  Create a web part page in SharePoint (e.g. LivelilkSearch.aspx)
2.  Create a user control using Visual Studio 2005\2008 which will have a text box (to enter         the query string) a search button(Which will call the Livelink search service and pass the query from text box to get the search results) and a gridview to show the Search Results from Livelink.
3.   In your visual studio project add a web reference to the Livelink Search Service.
4.   Add the code for the OnClick event of the search button to form the proper query string and pass it as a parameter to the ApplyQuery function of the Search service and get the results and show them in the GridView.
                5.    Add this user control as a web part(using SmartPart) on the Search page that we created.

  3. Interesting post Anshul. I'm assuming this was done in SharePoint 2010 or 2007?

    I would be interested in experimenting with your code. Could you also provide me with the webpart code/configuration at arnel@arnelsoliman.com?

    Thank you.

  11. Hi Anshul
    Thanks for the post - I'm completely new to LiveLink and have been asked to put together some specs for sharepoint/Livelink search integration. There are two approaches used that I've seen - oen is the method you use above, the other is to wrap the LiveLink services with another RESTful service in order to provide results in RSS format for OpenSearch consumers. have you got any thoughts on which of these approaches works best and why? Your approach looks fairly quick and easy, but without LiveLink experience it's very difficult for me to judge this. The OpenSearch approach is a little more involved but has more applications, although I'm not convinced of the value of OpenSearch here (do users really need to search Livelink from a browser etc.)... Any information is greatly appreciated!
