[OAI-implementers] List Id's for multiple sets
Thu, 8 Feb 2001 15:28:51 -0500 (EST)
Now that we're adding more sets, I'm suddenly unclear about the usage of
ListIdentifiers and ListRecords, where the set specification is optional.
When no set is specified, should I list ids/records from first one set,
then another, then another, till I run out of sets?
Using resumption tokens, should I keep track of which sets I've covered so
far, and pick up where I left off, so that all sets are covered, when no
set is specified?
This is looking more complicated than I expected. With no dates
specified, and no sets specified, the list could be enormous; and as more
and more sets are added, the resumption tokens could get pretty hairy too.
Question to those who have implemented this for multiple sets: is this
how you have done it, or do you have a better way?
