calibre can already export its database in several XML based formats. See the calibredb command or the catalog generation feature in the GUI

I did not think that XP allowed you to pin items to the Start Menu or Task Bar so I do not see how you can use that part of the functionality? I can see it acting as a generic launcher though.

I have thought about this too. I have already done this for the bug tracking system at my work, so I have some experience.

That is great. Your help is welcome.

I have been looking at various ways to accomplish this. See my question on stackoverflow. It is fairly easy to add a search connector to a web based service (even a localhost one) but the MSDN documentation sketchy about a local store. The microsoft guy behind the open search feature is here. Relevant MSDN - 1 ,2

That may be helpful somehow but I still think there should be a RSS/ATOM feed via the content server. There are a whole bunch of possibilities with feeds. It should also be able to accept the usual params like Query, Index, StartingPage, MaxResults ets

XP allows "Pin to Start Menu" (A right click option).
You can also drag the Shortcut to the Quick launch bar (If showing. Right click task bar, taskbars... to show)

The content server does export an atom feed in OPDS format.

That is good news. One XML transformation less for me.

But my point was different, as win7's federated search goes (or any other service looking for a feed), it expects to read that feed from a web source. It would also make sense for the content server to provide a feed for numerous advantages-
  • Integration into Win7's Federated search is just one.
  • It would provide so many possibilities like attaching one's library to facebook, friend-feed etc. I would love seeing my friends just read/updates/newly added books on social networks
  • provide publishers a means to syndicate books/excerpts/ chapters/samples
  • showing latest read books in forum sigs
etc etc etc I hope you see what I mean. feeds are sort of a basic mechanize to integrate the library with anything on the web. The more i think about this the more i like this idea.

The more i think about it

Right, so the content server does serve a feed, in a format specially designed for e- books called OPDS.

oh I see. I just inspected it using FireBug
Code:
http://localhost:8080/library?_=1267982863249&start=0&num=20&sort=date&search=dune&order=descending
There is no feed icon/link to signify that. dont expect all your users to have FireBug Now where do I find the documentation for the allowed params?

just google OPDS. Search supports the full syntax of searching in calibre, which means boolean, location specific searching.

What would be the point of adding a feed icon? OPDS feeds are not meant for consumption by RSS readers?

Thanks that was helpful. I have go partial results displaying in Win7 Fed search.

I still cant find any documentation on the allowed params for the /stanza url.

I know of these - /stanza?Search={query} and the sortby=byauthor/bytag etc.

What about the others for max results, page size, page index etc

At present it lists only 6 items by any sort option or by search param. I cant figure out all the param options
