Hi All,

I (and probably Gerrit as well) am looking for ways to integrate
Greenstone with an existing Java platform.

I compiled Greenstone with the CORBA flag as well as the Java Client.
However, I'm a bit stuck at the moment. Is there anybody that can
provide some general pointers? Or even better - some rudimentary docs ;-)
