I am looking to create some kind of portal for users to retrieve data.  Say they can click a County, Search a location and use a buffer etc....The code would then query the data and compile it (clip) to specific spatial boundaries and export to a zip (with multiple shapefiles or a GeoDatabase) or something similar and allow the user to download that. 

Are their any code examples of this.  Is this possible with the JavaScript api?  Not sure where to get started.
