    I have managed to foloow DatabaseToDictionary.txt and have created a database jwnl in MySQL. But I am hoping someone can tell me how I can then use that database, in lieu of having Wordnet itself installed on a computer, to accomplish such tasks as:

    net.didion.jwnl.data.IndexWord word=Dictionary.getInstance().getIndexWord(POS pos, String aword);
    Synset sset [] =  word.getSenses();

    Are there examples or documentation somewhere which shows me how to swap the database-backed dictionary in lieu of Wordnet itself? Thanks, Ralph Vince
