Message I have metadata stored in ArcSDE. How can I access them outside ArcGIS-Desktop ?

What I want to do is build a ASP.NET Web-application that searches through the metadata in ArcSDE.
Is that possible ?
Thanks !

Message I have looked at the ArcSDE Java Api and think that it can be a help. There is a class there called SeMetaData. I am goin to see if I can use that. But if you have any information at all, please post it.

Message ArcGIS metadata is stored in SDE-owned tables but can only be accessed
via ArcObjects.

Message Thanks for the reply Vince.
Have you done this ? Have you used the SEMetaData-Class ? I wonder if I can wrap the C-api class to a .NET class ?

Message ArcObjects does not use the ArcSDE metadata classes. ArcObjects
is the *only* API to access ArcGIS metadata.

Message hmm, dont really get that.
there are classes in the ArcSDE C-api dealing with the metadata:

SE_table_metadata_alter
SE_table_metadata_add
SE_table_metadata_delete
SE_table_metadata_delete_where
SE_table_metadata_free_info_list
SE_table_metadata_get_info_list

What do you use them for then ?
Thanks.

Message Last time: ArcGIS does *not* use the ArcSDE metadata API to
implement ArcGIS metadata.

You can use the ArcSDE metadata API functions to access whatever
may live in the SDE.METADATA table (Locator support data, mostly),
but that is not going to give you access to ArcGIS metadata.

Message Ok good.
Then I use ArcObjects instead.

What server-product is best to use for this purpose (a website with ArcObjects). Do I need ArcGIS Server or can I use something that doesnt need additional license ?
