i would like to propose a new functionality to the current available API calls : it's regarding the search use case, currently the API doesn't expose any search service it only offers the possibility to get a file using a set of parameters like repository_path, version, full_class_name... what i suggest is to add a new service that takes the search key words as a parameter and return a formatted text result that could be interpreted, for example a search for the keyword "Assert" would return :

<SearchResults>
<ResultItem>
<repository_path>repo1.maven.org/maven2</repository_path>
<group>junit</group>
<project>junit</project>
<version>4.8.1</version>
<full_class_name>org.junit.Assert</full_class_name>
</ResultItem>
</SearchResults>

this feature will allow the development of new plugins for netbeans or eclipse that are more independent and will allow the development of more advanced features not like the current ones which as i can see for the case of eclipse is just a browser nested within an Editor that browse the grepCode site.
