Lovely. Thanks guys. Everything is okay except for 3 things I don't know.

1. I don't know how to call Greenstone from Koha as you said to click on View Fulltext link.

2. Even though everything is working fine, but I do get this message when I call ./gs.sh:
- the server window shows error starting web-start
- I get the message that the system has waited for 20 seconds and couldn't start but when I click No (do not continue to wait), every thing goes on fine.

3. Where do all the modifications made on Koha page (detail.tmpl) appear?

well that is for the integration part.

if you come to greenstone directly from koha by clicking the View Fulltext
link, then you'll see that extracted metadata.

Greenstone uses OAI-PMH, for extracting metadata from KOHA. For this
purpose, you need to have OAI enabled i KOHA System Preferences as well.

Though, if you don't need the thing to be displayed, you can remove it from
the design panel to suit your needs.

In greenstone, when you process the records, you have to input metadata id
into a value box, which is actually obtained from koha. this way, greenstone
takes value from koha, and then it is displayed. But if there is no
corresponding entry of a document in koha, it cannot get the metadata
extracted, that's why it shows no koha document found. its just a message,
so it may be removed.

if there is anything else you are getting confused, please write back
