But the idea has one weak point: The destination platform for this medical database
may not have JAVA, therefore we need a plain C/C++ solution.
A libWWW-based solution would be the best, because the client-side is already

Still searching... (at the weekend I'll take a look if it's possible to convert this
java code to C++)
