I am going to build a search page with a text box and some refiners on the left side. I am using GSA (Google Search Appliance) for search functionality. The steps are:
- User enters search criteria and press search button
- I pass that query to GSA and get result in xml format
How can I display result on my search page?
Each search result item contains a TCM ID and I am using a fixed template for all search results.
Do I need to build a TBB that fetches the result from GSA and then renders with a template? If yes, then how can I pass search query to TBB when user presses the search button?
I have built many other TBBs, but all fetches information of current page, search page has to fetch information from an external source.
Help or guidance appreciated.
