Hi,
the e=... parameter is an "encoded" version of all the settings currently
in effect. I think the idea behind it was if you are browsing, you can
send a url to someone and they will see exactly what you see, rather
than seeing something different based on your cookies or sessions.
(Eg this stores all the settings and preferences like language, query terms,
search preferences like stemming/case folding, etc).

Having said that, I've always thought it was ugly as well, and there should
be an option to not use the encoded cgi argument. I'm not sure if it's
possible to disable it. But it would be a good thing for someone to add
one day...

Thanks, that explains it. It's funny, whenever I email someone a Greenstone url I construct my own cleaner, short ones because the longer ones can get cut off (and thus not work) by some people's email clients. I agree, this would make a nice option in future releases.

Hi,
I have a strange scenario on my hands. Whilst building a collection
comprising several Microsoft word files, some are correctly handled while
others are 'rejected' by the build process. What could be the reason?
Any help understanding this would be appreciated.
I'm using gsdl-2.72 on win xp.

Thanks.

It appears you need to install Java. (JVM means Java Virtual Machine.)

You could install Java EE SDK (Java enterprise edition software
development kit) because I believe the GLI (Greenstone Librarian
Interface) requires the Java SDK in order to function properly.

The Java SDK also includes the JRE (Java runtime environment) which
provides a Java virtual machine which appeared to be your original error.


I would suggest you download from this page:

https://sdlc5c.sun.com/ECom/EComActionServlet;jsessionid=C64245860E4433450725A92199C95DA3

Choose the bottom download (for windows)


Hope this helps,

Richard.
