Hi all, a bit of a different topic but Jeff mentioned above SearchResults and it got me thinking about the way I handle searching (search form and returning results) and it doesn't feel right. Basically I handle entering of ISearchFilter (just non-persistent search criteria fields), searching a catalog and returning of results in a single AddView form. As a result I have a single page template for this view and it is quite messy as it collects form input and displays search results. I would like to have two page views 1. ISearchFilter add view - collects search form fields and searches the catalog creating ISearchResults object 2. ISearchResults browser view of SearchResults object But I am having problems when navigating from the add view to ISearchResults browser view (tried to get the view using getMultiAdapter), maybe I should redirect to it? SearchResults object is created based on catalog search results but it is non-persistent and only lives in memory during a single transaction, how do I navigate to its browser view, what is its traversable path (or is locatable the right term)? Should I somehow register a factory for ISearchResults and use zapi.createObject() to create some sort of a context for the object? Or I might be completely missing the point. I think I am lacking in understanding of traversable, locatable concepts and if they can be of any relevance to non-persistent objects. Any explanation of this or pointers to documents I could read is much appreciated.
