Hi Frank,

Ok, I should have noticed. Thank you.
That test possibility is great.

Unfortunately not, because the current version of imageio-ext libs,
that handle the gdal and ecw bindings is far behind on the gdal
version. So we will not be able to exploit the installed gdal
packages. Until tat is not solved, I keep the needed native libs
inside the java installation, in order to be exploited also by the
geoserver installation (even if I never heard back from them).

Thanks, regards,
