We would like a custom Joomla component that will integrate with out custom parts database search, which exists on an external server. System would need to configurable for multiple sites, using different keycodes that allow access to the search DB. Will need the option for users to register before searching OR allow general public to search w/o login. Will probably require use of the wrapper or at least iFrames (Figuring out a way to NOT use iFrames would be very good, if possible).
Will also require a module containing the search boxes (part, and keyword) which posts to the iframe which loads up our DB search results. Module will also contain the option to use hidden extra variable input fields for passing through the Joomla user/email/company with each search.
Both component and module must be compatible with Joomla 1.0 AND 1.5!
