Search multiple pdf docs

Folks, Id really appreciate thoughts and advice here.
I currently have a website that has multiple links. Each link will (when clicked) use a simple javascript function:-
 function callurl(url) {
   document.getElementById('myFrame').style.visibility="visible";
   document.getElementById('myFrame').src = url;
   }
This calls a pdf file from a directory & loads it into the 'myFrame' div. Now I have been asked if I can add a search function. The intention would be that this search would search all of the pdfs for a specific word..So my questions are:-
 How easy would this be ?
What method would you use ?
Thank you

I would just set up Google Custom Search and let Google handle the indexing of the PDF files.

Not sure this would work as the website in question sits on a private intranet ! But will look into this..

No, then it wouldn't.  But what you could do is use a local search package that can index PDF files such as htDig:
