Drag and Drop Advanced Search

Hi there,


I was wondering if anyone already created his own extension on Alfresco for an advanced search possibilty besides the existing one?
Off course the already advanced search is really helpfull however I think that when we start adding more and more data to Alfresco, this search will not be enough.

I can't ask from my colleagues to search like TYPE:"my:contenttype" AND ASPECT:"my:aspect" etc. etc.
I was thinking of creating a webpage/webscript where users are able to create their own lucene search query.
By drag and drop or something with autocompletion.

They need to be able to combine all the metadata from Alfresco in 1 search statement i.e.
- I'm searching for a specific content type
     - Which is created between ….. and …..

OR
- I know category X is attached
     - and aspect Y or was it aspect Z

Kind regards,


Marcel Kieboom
