OK I'm back onto this now - next steps please

I've got the latest Sun one on Windows and Linux now
On SUSE it is important to read the notes, and run the setup
scripts to set $JAVA_HOME etc.

Would not work because Linux machine needs proxy, but have
downloaded via WinCVS
( I'll get the windows version working some time <g> )

> c) cd client-java/src/build

Put mine in /opt/interbase/client-java - That should be OK?

> d) ls -l, if it is not executable, chmod 755

Also had to change ant to executable ( ?antRun )

> e) ./

SUSE had different paths set so I had to modify script to
get it to run
( Will check up on this later and write up some installation
notes for SUSE8.0 if only for my reference )

Magic - after some tinkering.

? Something I will have to work on yet - just put in path
for moment.

I seem to recall seeing some test bits to try the interface
out, but can't find them now, can you point me in the right
direction please. Or suggest a next step <g>
