Subject RE: Java API for Metadata
Date Wed, 31 Mar 2004 07:42:34 GMT
Thanks for your great work. I just feel like introducing it to my article in
May issue of Microsoftware, a Korean journal for software developers. 

By the way, I actually failed to build JAM first. I figured it out by adding

    <ant dir='..' target='jsr173_api.jar' inheritAll='false' />

to jsr173 target in build.xml for JAM. (I guess it was also because I hadn't
built xmlbeans before building JAM.)
