This search is integrated into the DITA to HTML (or .php) publishing result. Following are several things I have done:

* Use "curl" (or "awscurl") to generate index in AWS Elastic search.
* Convert DITA map & topics into JSON and execute "bulk" operation.
* Develop PHP program that accepts search request from client browser and return the search result from Elasticsearch as JSON.
* The JSON search results are edited by JavaScript and displayed in the browser.
* By clicking the search result, a user can reach the target Web page.

It was very exciting experience because I must learn about AWS operations and develop PHP and JavaScript (TypeScript) programs which I haven't ever knew.
Unfortunately it is still pilot project. However it will be integrated into user Web publishing system in the feature.
