[EP-tech] Can EPrints provide a web service interface for other web servers?



Hi Andras,


One option could be to use the OAI-PMH interface? <https://kar.kent.ac.uk/cgi/oai2> https://[your repository]/cgi/oai2 You might have to harvest the data into some sort of index though. Another option could be to modify an RSS feed URL for a search query with the search you want. That would give you a fairly easy XML format with the search results to read.


Regards

Subject: [EP-tech] Can EPrints provide a web service interface for other web servers?

Dear List Members,

Do you know if there is a way an EPrints repository can be configured so that it can be used by another server to extract data from the repository automatically?
(That other server might be a web server collecting search results for visitors from a couple of sources, one of them being the EPrints repository.)

If the feature described above is not built into EPrints right away then is there a recommended way to implement this feature as a web service? (SOA)

Thanks,
