I made it at last.The problem was that the zebra daemon
was not running.i folowe option 2 for running the zebra process as
daemon.then i tried option 1 as indicted in the Installation document and
the search engine worked.
and about the barcode stuff i did the same way as you
told me to .it had some problems initially like the items location was not
defined and item type was not getting saved properly.after a few strugle i
was able to Check out the book sucessfully.
Now that i have to add some of the books manually because
they are not available online.indoing that i have customized my framework to
just a few key fields.but when i entered them manually and tried to save
them the application gives an error saying "cannot be saved with Tag =''".it
says i have left some of the subfilds empty but i made sure that i have
entered the data for all the fields and subfields.
could sny one suggest me a way to enter this manually.
