[EP-tech] Re: Citation import plugin errors



This is a compatibility issue with EPrints 3.3. 

The citation plugin package provides the EPrints::LogHandler class which implements the same interface as EPrints::CLIProcessor for handling logging when the imports are running but the interface changed in 3.3. 

We're not running 3.3 so I can't test this, but I think if you copy the epdata_to_dataobj() method from the CLIProcessor into EPrints::LogHandler it should work.

Cheers
Mark

What's at line 310 of that file?

It sounds like a typo somewhere. There is an EPrints::Apache::LogHandler module, but it doesn't do epdata_to_dataobj.

Do you have any documentation for the service?

(The trouble with ISI is they don't appear to provide any public documentation on their APIs ...)
