Use TREX Search outside portal
1.We have our intranet indexed with Autonomy search engine;
2.We have TREX installed and we have SAP EP7.0
3.We have our intranet also indexed by TREX in our SAP portal (using Web Repository in KM).
Now we would like to replace Autonomy intranet search with TREX. This means that the search field on the intranet page should contact TREX for a search instead of Autonomy.
How can we achieve that?
I have found documents and blogs about TREX API. I know that TREX Java client communicates with TREX server over TCP/IP and that they exchange XML files with the search request and results.
Maybe this would be possible if a TREX java client was available outside portal, but I haven't found it until now.

we have given "edmond" as the query string and searching in the folder "/intranet"and also now Search Visible as true.
