Hi Leon ,

I'm interested in using Greenstone with CORBA and Java, too.
I compiled Greenstone with the CORBA Flag. But now, I dont know
how to start the CORBA - Server. There has to be an executable for the
Greenstone CORBA - Server, or not ?

Have you found any additional information about the CORBA - Interface?
Do you found the sourcecode for the Javaclient ?
