If your pages can all be just static files, you can configure the site mail url in GSA and it will index based on sitemap. Or else, you can write a agent to post content via gsa api and index on modification of pages and assets. To show the response , you need to get the data as xml and parse and display on the page. Adobe SearchandPromote  does something very similar and much more and has OOB integration. Please have a look.

In GAS, you need to configure :

1) Front Ends  Set up Front Ends to create different search and search results pages. 

    e.g. mysite_prod_frontend

https://www.google.com/support/enterprise/static/gsa/docs/admin/70/admin_console_help/serve_frontend...

2) configure URL for crawling ( e.g. http://www.mysite.com/ )

Exclude url patterns if needed.

3) create collections 

e.g. default_collection can including all pages. "/"

https://www.google.com/support/enterprise/static/gsa/docs/admin/70/admin_console_help/crawl_collecti...

4) configure 

https://www.google.com/support/enterprise/static/gsa/docs/admin/70/admin_console_help/crawl_fresh.ht...

 

In CQ, search criteria should be set for all pages, as part of meta data. 

<head>

<meta http-equiv="keywords" content="CQ,  AME">

</head>

Create CQ  component for Search functionality. Component would retrieve data from GSA ( via API) in your CQ search component.

Hi Samb,

I couldnt find any article/document on integrating with GSA. As we know GSA is a crawling search engine, you can use GSA APIs to build your index and search from the index. We had done this in one of our implementation. I will try to come up with a document in couple of days and see if it helps you.
