[EP-tech] Re: Not Importing other metadata fields using the XML Plugin



Hi Admire

It seems to me, that your using quite an old XML Format (the page you mention is from 2003). Actually your record can be imported like that:

<eprints>
<eprint>
<userid>1</userid>
<date>2010-07-26</date>
<type>article</type>
<title>State - Civil Relations and Economic Management: the contribution of the Institute of Development Studies, University of Zimbabwe</title>
  <creators>
    <item>
      <name>
        <given>Donald</given>
        <family>Chimanikire</family>
         </name>
    </item>
</creators>
<divisions>universities</divisions>
<keywords>civil society</keywords>
<keywords>state relations</keywords>
<keywords>economic management</keywords>
<keywords>Southern Africa</keywords>
<keywords>Zimbabwe</keywords>
<eprint_status>archive</eprint_status>
<metadata_visibility>show</metadata_visibility>
<full_text_status>none</full_text_status>
<official_url>http://hdl.handle.net/10646/8</official_url>>
<abstract>Paper presented at a National Workshop sponsored by OSSREA on "Promoting Good Governance and Wider Civil Society Participation in Eastern and Southern Africa: The Case of Zimbabwe", 15 September 2000</abstract>
</eprint>
</eprints>

As the default keywords field is a simple textfield there will be warning during the import, that element keywords is appearing multiple times. You may merge those keywords together before the import or modify the field type of keywords in Eprints.

Hi

I am trying to import an XML formatted file in Eprints as outlines in http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/~uazmjg/eprints/archives/000074.html . Below is the file that I have created using the XML::Writer from metadata harvested from an OAI-compliant repository using the  Net::OAI::Harvester .

<eprints>
<record>
<field name="userid">1</field>
<field name="datestamp">2010-07-26</field>
<field name="type">article</field>
<field name="title">State - Civil Relations and Economic Management: the contribution of the Institute of Development Studies, University of Zimbabwe</field>
<field name="creators">
        <part name="given">Donald</part>
        <part name="family">Chimanikire</part>
</field>
<field name="divisions">universities</field>
<field name="keywords">civil society</field>
<field name="keywords">state relations</field>
<field name="keywords">economic management</field>
<field name="keywords">Southern Africa</field>
<field name="keywords">Zimbabwe</field>
<field name="eprint_status">archive</field>
<field name="metadata_visibility">show</field>
<field name="full_text_status">none</field>
<field name="URL">http://hdl.handle.net/10646/8</field><http://hdl.handle.net/10646/8%3C/field%3E>
<field name="abstract">Paper presented at a National Workshop sponsored by OSSREA on "Promoting Good Governance and Wider Civil Society Participation in Eastern and Southern Africa: The Case of Zimbabwe", 15 September 2000</field>
</record>
</eprints>



Now when I import using the command    ./bin/import   researchdatabase  --verbose    --user 1  archive  XML  output.xml
Where output.xml is the file with the xml that is shown above, I get the following message:


Use of qw(...) as parentheses is deprecated at /usr/share/eprints3/bin/../perl_lib/Apache/DBI.pm line 264.
Use of qw(...) as parentheses is deprecated at /usr/share/eprints3/bin/../perl_lib/Apache/DBI.pm line 288.
"my" variable $basename masks earlier declaration in same scope at /usr/share/eprints3/bin/../perl_lib/EPrints/MetaField/Secret.pm line 169.

Starting EPrints Repository.
Connecting to DB ... done.

Ending EPrints Repository.

However, on  accessing the record 525, the record has no metadata values that were in the file output.xml. It only contains the auto-generated metadata fields

I will appreciate any pointers as to where I am getting it wrong.
