Re: [EP-tech] Importer issue with RIOXX plugin?



I tried that originally (setting $ds to buffer) and got an error that eprint_status wasn’t set…  Trying it now doesn’t throw that error at me but still fails with the BackCompatibility.pm line 443 error.


When I stop EPrints::DataObj trying to write History files for RIOXX2 fields the errors don’t occur.

What happens if you do:


my $ds = $repo->dataset('buffer');

$eprint = $ds->create_dataobj ();


(that's off the top of my head, but your way of doing it doesn't look like a best practice)

See https://github.com/eprints/eprints/blob/3.3/perl_lib/EPrints/Plugin/Screen/NewEPrint.pm#L42 for how the NewEPrint plugin creates it (though it does use an old API call)

Hi all,

Has anyone else encountered a problem with adding new eprints using



                        my $eprint = $ds->create_dataobj( \%ep_data );


On a system with the RIOXX2 plugin installed?


It seemed to be falling over with a


Can't call method "current_repository" on an undefined value at /opt/eprints3/perl_lib/EPrints/BackCompatibility.pm line 443.


When trying to process this loop:



for a RIOXX2 field, although I see that the MetaField::RIOXX2::to_sax method does nothing…


when I removed the plugin the new creations process worked fine, but with the RIOXX2 plugin installed it just fails on the same record and line every time.
