Core service 1.2[edit]

  • RC vs Stable release
  • Test results from MPDL expected


  • Migration does not work, other methods are fine
  • User groups/ user management - no blocker
  • MPDL will send report of what is tested
  • regarding Administrator-user groups - feedback from MPDL expected

Transfer Ownership[edit]


  • planned to improve
  • 1.3 is not yet approved and final
  • consider at least schema/policies change with the interface change in 1.3

PREMIS1 to PREMIS2[edit]

new properties for OU[edit]


  • not discussed

OAI-PMH Provider and DC Transformation[edit]

  • inclusion of version PID and/or object PID in DC datastream in effective manner
  • Coreservice URL as OAI-PMH identifier


  • Core service URL
    • according the OAI-PMH specification the identifier of OAI-PMH can not be the OAi-PMH Repository identifier
    • also fedora-identifiers given to OAI-pMH are different
    • dc:identifiers
      • Handle is persistent
      • URL is not persistent in eSciDoc
      • we have to guarantee the URLs
  • technical issues with the eSciDoc XML Export
  • no obvious solution at the moment
  • at the moment DC transformation works only for one single(mandatory) metadata record
  • initial requirement: DC transformation shall work for the Item.xml representation
  • Colab Page for discussion see OAI_PMH_Provider and DC Transformation

Core-service 1.3[edit]

  • start?
  • Agreed on joint teams

SolR/Administrative searches/DB cache[edit]

  • aspects performance, authorization
  • improvements:
    • facets, tag clouds
    • date searches

Admin tools[edit]

  • policies
  • roles
  • AA as potential reuse for non-core service AA (?)


  • MPDL prios to be communicated
  • 1.3 feature list not yet confirmed

releases PubMan[edit]

  • MPDL can build PubMan 6.0.1 with core-service 1.2
  • Drawbacks:
    • no guarantees (not tested)
    • eSciDoc Admin solution will not run stable
  • expected fully tested 6.1 pubMan Release
    • Mid April 2010


  • Pubman can be delivered with core-service 1.2
    • need to be tested manually
    • no automated full GUI test coverage so far

Additional Core service questions[edit]

  • can statistical service run independently
  • can databases needed for core-service functionality (escidoc-core, statistics, fedora) be configured under completely separate postmasters


  • statistical service at the moment uses Fedora generated IDs for report/aggregation definition, but it is not impossible (to be placed in JIRA as an impovement)
  • no, they have to run under same postmaster (?)


  • eSciDoc-Colab Page setup
  • Alignment of tools and processes (e.g., Maven)
  • Improved and harmonized communication of eSciDoc
  • eSciDoc Blog
  • service names and classification
  • service-architecture board
  • documentation of services
  • installation guides
  • eSciDoc Lab: Colab page gathering experimental modules
  • Exchange of staff members for specific developments or share development

eSciDoc Colab[edit]

  • domain-redirection for the eSciDoc-colab
  • set up the colab and move the eSciDoc pages from MPDL colab


  • MPDL can not do it until new SysAdmin is on board
