My name is Michael Manoch and I am working on a library system called BIBOS:IV.
BIBOS:IV is a system to support most (all?) of the needs for libraries and
should also work for museums, archives, ...

Since only search/retrieval is on interest for Z39.50 applications, here are
some project specifications:

technical project specifications for our RetrievalService:
   Thin client application written in Java.
   Fat server application written in C++.
   Communication between client and server via CORBA (Orbix2000).
   Data stored in XML format in ORACLE databases, made fultext searchable via
   FULCRUM.
   Data exchange between client and server in XML format.

general project specifications for our RetrievalService:
   Library format is MAB2 with additional information.
   Supports an unrestricted number of independent libriaries.
   Libraries can build a consortium (= they use the same catalog).

For search/retrieval we have a web service (tomcat webserver with java servlet;
java servlet communicating with our C++ RetrievalServer via CORBA).

We are interested in implementing a Z39.50 client and server.
On visiting  http://www.loc.gov/z3950/agency/zng.html I have seen a lot of
anologies in ZNG and our search/retrieval service.

So I would need (detailed) info about writing ZNG client/server.
Will ZNG become a (the?) Z39.50 standard?
What ZNG clients/servers are now available and what are their specifics?
Are there any ZNG clients/servers to be available soon?


Yours sincerly

Michael Manoch
