Alternative to File Picker for web forms

Question asked by mark.smithson on Sep 6, 2007
We have a requirement to select an existing document for a field in a webform. However there are potentially thousands of documents for a user to select from.

This is not going to very useable using the anyURI type and the file picker component provided by Alfresco.

Ideally what we would like to do is for the form to provide a search facility (perhaps using OpenSearch, which I guess could be backed by a custom web script) to search for and then select the document for the web form.

Can anyone comment on the viability of this approach, how difficult it is likely to be, any gotchas and/or andy pointers on how to get started.
