It looks like it can be used as a browser applet to search docs on the
intranet, as you imagined. This site
(http://www.brownsite.net/docsearch.htm) has a little bit about using it as a
web interface. Lucene (which DocSearcher uses) has info
(http://jakarta.apache.org/lucene/docs/gettingstarted.html) that is relevant,
too. When I get some more time, I'll delve further into it, but DocSearcher
could be packaged such that it can serve as a browser applet.
