The extra jars were from the example on Daisy's site. You are right that
only those jars are needed. I put the others because I wasn't sure if I
would need the rest.

Following Daisy's documentation, I see that there are three interfaces:
Javascript, the Java API and the HTTP API. I was planning to use the
Java API

get the documents from the repository.
I believe your method uses the HTTP API. Should I be going in this
direction instead ?
