Naming OAI handler

I have enabled OAI on AgEcon Search. It can be reached at the URL:

John Chapman gave me a list of common OAI sites:


Of the URLs there I like the one below the best:

XML/XSD/XSL Registry (xmlregistry.oclc.org)

It does not have an explicit IP or refer to specific technology, so it would b e easy to maintain as AgEcon migrates from box to box and from one technology to the next.

So based on that I plan on using:

Changes in config files

The changes below were required to for oai to come to life:

File: ./config/dspace.cfg
config.template.oaicat.properties = ${dspace.dir}/config/oaicat.properties ... old
config.template.oaicat.properties = ${dspace.dir}/config/templates/oaicat.properties ... new

File: ./build.xml
./build.xml:281: <replace file="${dspace.dir}/config/templates/oaicat.properties"
./build.xml:285: <replace file="${dspace.dir}/config/templates/oaicat.properties"

File: ./etc/oai-web.xml
./etc/oai-web.xml:66: @@dspace.dir@@/config/templates/oaicat.properties

Test OAI handler
