Thanks Sir,
    Thanks for the suggestion. I would like to tell u more detail about my project. We have to build a web site for PDA using asp.net and my friend is on that. She have to send a user request to me and I have to  retrieve it from greenstone . That's our assignment. 
I saw some  green stone samples with very nice interface here : http://www.greenstone.org/cgi-bin/library?e=p-en-home-utfZz-8&a=p&p=examples
these are Greenstone interfaces ? When can I get example projects to refer to build something like one of those. And where can I get sample codes for adding and retrieving?
pls help me! only two days and they ask me to do something to show them sooner :(.
and how do I add ability ???? Thanks for the supports. I'm looking forwards to ur reply!
 
Thanks, I installed web library on my pc and configured on iis.

Hi PaingThu,
Greenstone 2 has no built in method of returning XML to web services so adding the ability would require knowledge of C++. Greenstone 3 however does use XML between components, so your web server should be able to ask the components to return XML and then work with that.
I'd say a much easier way would be to use a PDA that has a decent web browser and use Greenstone's built in web interface on the PDA. The advantage of this way is that you can use a stock Greenstone installation with very little customisation. To do this all you have to do is install IIS on Windows XP and follow the Greenstone installation instructions on the wiki.
