Calling SOLR search to retrieve documents in Alfresco and passing information back

Hi community,

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post my question, because other sub-forum also matches… please move if necessary.
Let me tell you in a few points the requirement of a customer, to understand what is needed and whether there are already somewhere solutions or approaches available:
There is an external on-premise system on customer side. Records that are stored in this system needs to be enriched with some information from an Alfresco document.
The requested use-case from the customer is:
1) The user clicks on a menu command within the record in the legacy system (not web-based)
2) Alfresco pops up with a simple search window, where some basic search criteria can be entered
3) The user get a result list and is able select a desired document
4) A button "Submit" has to be be available for the result list
5) After clicking "Submit", any webscript on the on-premise system should be invoked to receive some properties of the document

I'm looking for a best way to solve this requirement. We dont want to have the full Share overhead available, just a search page should appear, no additional menus. As simple as possible. The login should (or can) be done by a special user that is only created for this use case (the enduser should not login manually, SSO is not an option). Are there any resources available that I can use as basis? Or do I have to develop it completely by my own? Maybe it can be solved by just using SOLR?
What could be an approach? I also want to take into account, that I want to use most of Alfresco standard functionality (if possible).

Thanks for sharing any ideas.
