BO: Metadata Search within Universes


Dear BO Experts,

I am currently exploring ways to implement a simple search functionality within our BO environment and need some suggestions to accomplish this.

We have a large number of universes within our environment which are available to the end users, and we would like to make it easier for our business users to search through objects within the universes.

So, for e.g. if the business user would like to find a universe containing the Net Sales measure, he could type this object name in an intranet search page, which lists all the universes containing this object.

I was wondering if the web services SDK could be used to do this, but could not find much information regarding a search API within the SDK. Or not sure if this could be accomplished using the JAVA or the .NET SDK and deployed via the web in any way.

Appreciate any suggestions !
