Re: OpenJDK compatibility

While we are only using Fedora Commons in a test environment, we have 
had no trouble with OpenJDK running on Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04.

Cheers

Hayden

Workflow management solutions


Our institution is researching workflow management solutions that would sit on top of Fedora without installing Muradora.  We would like to work something more generic than, say, something that manages just dissertations and theses, or sci docs, but would still manage a fairly complicated ruleset.  Any hints out there?

Thanks,

Re: Workflow management solutions

Hi Brian,

You could take a look at the Drupal workflow module[1]. Using that
with the fedora_rest module[2] would let you define your own workflows
to create or modify Fedora objects, but you would have to write your
own actions (using the FedoraClient API in the fedora_rest module) to
submit or modify anything in the repository. I've done this for a
simple workflow for transcribing and translating audio recordings
(example PHP code available on request), but I don't know if it could
"manage a fairly complicated ruleset." You might also look at the
Rules module[3].

NEWS RELEASE: DuraSpace Launches New Service Provider Program to Support Open Source Software

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

June 30, 2010
Contact: Michele Kimpton: mkimpton <at> DuraSpace.org

DuraSpace Launches New Service Provider Program to Support Open Source Software

Ithaca, NY  Today, the DuraSpace not-for-profit organization announced its new Registered Service Provider Program to establish partnerships with companies that provide support services to institutions using the DSpace and Fedora digital repository software.

The new program will establish an network of service providers offering a range of services including customer support, technical consulting, software development, and systems integration.   The program will benefit universities, libraries, museums, research institutions, and others that require support in building or maintaining repository-based systems built with DSpace, Fedora, and related open source and commercial technologies.
 
Registered Service Providers will be easily identified.   They will be featured on the DuraSpace web site (duraspace.org) and relevant project websites, with contact information and a profile of their service offerings.   Providers will also exhibit their affiliation with DuraSpace by displaying the special DuraSpace Service Provider Logo on their marketing materials and websites. 

Registered Service Providers share the DuraSpace commitment to ensuring that current and future generations have access to our collective digital heritage. Service Providers are active participants in open source software communities and are committed to providing expertise and technical consulting to enable customers to achieve their goals with open technologies.  

The program will launch with five initial Registered Service Providers: Atmire (i.e., <at> mire), CILEA, DiscoveryGarden, Enovation, Media Shelf and Winjit.  DuraSpace invites other companies providing services supporting digital repositories and cloud-based solutions to join.

DiscoveryGarden CEO Mark Leggott says, "DiscoveryGarden is excited to be among the first companies working with the DuraSpace community as a member of the Registered Service Provider Program. The DuraSpace family of open source software provides an unparalleled foundation for building a healthy repository ecosystem that can help steward digital assets in any landscape. This new program is an excellent example of how we can both benefit from and contribute to building a vibrant and sustainable DuraSpace community."

DiscoveryGarden provides consulting and software-as-service based around the Islandora open source solution stack.  Islandora integrates two best-practice open source software solutions (Drupal and Fedora repositories) to create unique systems for digital asset management and enterprise content management.

Lieven Droogmans, CEO of Atmire ( <at> mire) says, " <at> mire is proud to be one of the first Registered Service Providers in the DuraSpace program. Through this financial and technical commitment, our company seeks to further extend its relationship with the community and to contribute to the continuity and success of DSpace around the world. DSpace is the key component in most of <at> mire's projects and lies at the core of <at> mire's activities. Each member of our technical staff is fully devoted to DSpace customization and development.”

Atmire ( <at> mire) is a company that has a wide offering for institutions running DSpace repositories including installation, customization, add-on modules, training and support services.

For more information about Registered Service Providers, or to join the DuraSpace Registered Service Providers Program, contact Michele Kimpton at mkimpton-RMZ2BmOfPoTNLxjTenLetw@public.gmane.org.

Re: Workflow management solutions

We, and a few other institutions, have used a combination of a lightweight scripted Web-app with a JMS
messaging fabric. We used Ruby-on-Rails, and I know that Northwestern University used Drupal.  We used
Apache ActiveMQ for messaging. Northwestern's more elegant solution used Apache Camel with ActiveMQ.
Bill Parod (on this list) can speak to that setup.

We'd like to examine JBoss Drools or possibly an ESB-based solution going forward.

Fedora 3.4 Release Candidate 1 released today

Fedora Repository 3.4 Release Candidate 1 released today July 2 2010
 
Fedora 3.4-RC1 is now available for download from the main Fedora Repository page at http://wiki.duraspace.org/x/AgAU.  Release 3.3 of Fedora will continue to be available from this page until the final version of Fedora 3.4 is released, which we are aiming to do in August.
 
Although a minor release, this version includes a number of exciting new features and bug fixes that make Fedora an ever more compelling repository platform.
 
You are encouraged to download this new release and give it a spin.  Please let us have your comments and feedback via the mailing lists, and of course please let us know of any problems you discover.
 
As this is a Release Candidate, testing has not been as rigorous as the testing normally carried out for a final release, although it has been tested on a number of different platforms.  Therefore for production use we would recommend that you use Fedora 3.3.
 
Some of the important new features in this release are:
  • DC, RELS-EXT, RELS-INT as Managed Content: The Dublin Core and Relationships datastreams can now be stored as Managed Content, improving performance particularly when these datastreams are large
  • REST API relationships methods: New methods in the REST API for adding and manipulating relationships in RELS-EXT and RELS-INT
  • Enhanced Content Models: Including the ability to validate objects against their content models, and support for optional datastreams
  • Optimistic Locking: The REST API now provides support for optimistic locking to ensure no-one else has made a change to an object since you started editing it
  • FeSL Authentication: FeSL Authentication can now be used independently of FeSL's experimental authorization mechanism, and is now the default authentication mechanism (although the old mechanism can be specified during installation). FeSL Authorization is still disabled by default.
  • Logging reconfiguration without restart: Using the new SLF4J and Logback logging framework, logging configuration changes now become effective without having to restart the server
  • REST API improvements and bug fixes: further stabilizing the REST API
  • Deprecation of "LITE" APIs: As of this release, the API-A-LITE and API-M-LITE APIs are deprecated, and will be removed in a future release. You are encouraged to migrate any code using these APIs to use the new REST API.
Full release notes for this release are available from https://wiki.duraspace.org/x/AoFHAQ
 
Java package naming and Java version
  • As of release 3.4, Java 5 (JDK 1.5) is no longer supported. Java 6 (JDK 1.6) or later is required both to build and run Fedora.
  • Java package names have undergone a thorough revision for this release. If you have your own code built against Fedora libraries and you update these to use the libraries from this version you will need to update your code to use the new package names.
 
Many thanks to all of you who have made this release possible, not only those who have contributed directly to the code for this release, but also those of you who have provided comments and feedback on the mailing lists and raised issues in JIRA.  We rely on the continued involvement of those who use Fedora to continue to make the project a success.
 
 
Regards
Steve Bayliss
Fedora 3.4 Release Manager

fedora - search datastream content

Dear all,

Can you please help me with the following case:

I have objects that have 'Internal XML metadata' type of datastream.
This datastream content looks as follows:

<wlin:result>
    <wlin:deviceID>ID</wlin:deviceID>
    <wlin:temperature>TEMP_VALUE</wlin:temperature>
    ...
    ...
</wlin:result>

Is there any way using gsearch, itql to get objects where i.e.
<wlin:temperature> fulfills given condition , < 20, > 30, between 20 and 30
etc or where device ID is < 100 etc.

I would be grateful for any help...

Regards,
Damian

SWORD v2.0: Deposit Lifecycle - white paper

[Apologies for cross-posting]

Dear All,

To coincide with the OR10 conference this week in Madrid, we have produced a white paper which discusses
some options for the next steps in the SWORD standard.  This paper has been written based on work carried out
at Symplectic over the past year, with significant influence and feedback from Jim Downing, Graham
Klyne, Stuart Lewis, Adrian Stevenson, Paul Walk and David Flanders, as well as with support from UKOLN
and JISC.

The aim of the paper is to stimulate discussion around introducing more complete treatment of "deposit
lifecycle" management of objects in digital repositories, and to propose the next small steps in this
direction.  There will be a sword workshop during OR10, and we'd like to get some discussion going there
about this topic, so if you would like to join us and bring your thoughts that would be fantastic.  If you are
not going to be at OR10 (or even if you are), please do feel free to share any comments on this list or on the
jiscpress instance (where the paper can be downloaded):

http://sword2depositlifecycle.jiscpress.org

Please do feel free to share this further with other communities and lists which may be interested.

All the best,

Richard Jones
