Open source Java OAI provider and harvester with support for ODL search
The Digital Library for Earth System Education (DLESE) is pleased to
announce its latest version of OAI software. The DLESE OAI software is
designed to be simple to install, configure and use and includes both a
data provider and harvester. The data provider serves metadata from XML
files, automatically updating what is provided whenever the XML files
change. The harvester likewise saves harvested metadata to files.
The software supports the OAI-PHM v2.0. In addition, the data provider
exposes its metadata to outside clients as a web service through an Open
Digital Libraries (ODL) search interface. Remote clients can perform
keyword search queries over the metadata using the ODL search interface
and receive an ordered list of matching records within the standard
OAI-PMH XML response.
The software is packaged as a Java WAR file for use in a servlet
environment such as Tomcat and will run on UNIX, Windows and Mac OS X.
The software is available under the GPL open source license.
