      Description

      Javadoc should generate a page that allows to trigger a search from the query string encoded in the URL.

      The page could do this in one (or several) of the following ways:

       - Pop up the existing search result menu to display the search results for the query string
       - Generate a page dynamically containing the search results for the query string
       - Redirect the request to the best/first item or the search results for the query string.

      I have implemented a POC/prototype for the first and third option:

      http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~hannesw/javadoc-search-page/api.00/?search=string&send=1

      http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~hannesw/javadoc-search-page/api.00/?search=string&redirect=1
