Hi Quan,
thanks for your mail! Very useful! I have changed the collectionconfig,xml with my wish. It works.
for my 6 question i have tried to check out the version of Java, JRE_HOME an Java_Home like you wrote to me. But it didn't work for the binary install file of GSDL3. So i tried to install the GSDL 3 from the source package with the ant fresh_install.
Here is the error message with ant:
build.xml:125:Unexpected element "condition"

In the Line 125: <condition property="app.version" value="trunk">

I think, the ant install searched the java environment too. But i don't know why it didn't work by me.
I found the problem for a long time. But just got the right solution for myself, please help me!
regards and thanks
