[opencms-dev] access opencms documents from java application

You don't want to use OpenCmsCore directly.  Use the class 'OpenCms' to
get an instance of CmsObject, and then use the methods on CmsObject.
You can do most things with CmsObject that you want to do with
OpenCmsCore.  Like this:

	import org.opencms.main.OpenCms;
	import org.opencms.file.CmsObject;


	CmsObject session = null;
	session = OpenCms.initCmsObject("Guest");
	session.loginUser(userName, password);

I assume from the nature of your question that you are executing this
code in an application that can call the OpenCms API directly, as I
don't think there are any EJBs / JMX beans / Web Services that you can
call from another application.
