Hi Greg,

> I'll use this on Tuesday evening when i am next in proximity to the server. I don't think this box has Java and isn't on the internet -- doesn't GLI require Java runtime ?

Yes, that's right. If you don't want to install Java you can do command-line building instead, or build your collections elsewhere and copy them onto the server.

Regards,

Michael
