Edit Metadata upon upload

Hi All

I am looking for any tutorial or any guide to implement a simple feature:

when a user uploads a document, he is prompted to enter the custom metadata associated with the document type

It is best illustrated by this add-on built commercially: http://alfresco.fme.de/extension-gallery/overview/edit-meta-data-during-upload/

In lieu of a fancy pop-up, I am willing to settle for redirecting the user upon upload to the Edit Properties page and edit the metadata from there, I thought that I could simply add a custom rule which upon meeting conditions it executes a javascript, uploaded to Repository->DataDictionary->Scripts. However it seems that the javascripts uploaded into here are server side and so does nothing in terms of redirection.

How can I solve this problem? I found a few threads on here and stackoverflow of people trying to implement this, but nobody has yet posted a solution, did they all just give up or did fme.de remove all those posts since if there was a posted solution, nobody would buy their addon?

Thanks for your help
