Changed default maxHarvests value to 0. Added logic to ignore maxHarvests value when it is set to 0 or a negative number. This allows Harvester to run indefinitely without shutting down after reaching a maximum number of harvests. The previous default value of 30 would cause Harvester to terminate after 30 harvests.

2388 01/31/2005 02:49 PM Duane Costa

Reorganized and clarified installation instructions to make the order of...

2311 09/21/2004 03:01 AM Matt Jones

Created a list of all of the servlet actions in the documentation and listed

client API and the Metacat 'getlog' servlet action for event reporting.
