Hi PaingThu,

Greenstone 2 has no built in method of returning XML to web services
so adding the ability would require knowledge of C++. Greenstone 3
however does use XML between components, so your web server should be
able to ask the components to return XML and then work with that.
I'd say a much easier way would be to use a PDA that has a decent
web browser and use Greenstone's built in web interface on the PDA.
The advantage of this way is that you can use a stock Greenstone
installation with very little customisation. To do this all you have
to do is install IIS on Windows XP and follow the Greenstone
installation instructions on the wiki.
