Hello Luigi,

Regarding the questions in your email about the OAI server (copied at
the end of this message):

Greenstone's OAI server does not hardwire absolute paths. Therefore,
transferring collections between operating systems as you described
(such as from Windows to Linux) is not an issue.

Also, when there are source documents, Greenstone will provide those
documents themselves (e.g. if you have PDF files in your collection,
then Greenstone's OAI server will provide those). Otherwise, it will use
the generated HTML or text.

Regards,
Anupama

Hi Sam and John,

I test the Windows Greenstone 2.85 that you prepare for me.
I use 2 pdf files. They are attached.

I join a word file with my impressions.
I note many many problems on metadata extraction for pdf files.

For 01947.pdf no significant metadata are extracted ...
Metadata like "Aaaa Cccc Rrrr" are split by space ....

The url for oai use absolute path : I make collections on my pc
but I use on a Linux server : the url in not c:\program files\.......
but http://myserver/.....
but greenstone produce this kind of absolute url.
The url use a html or txt file .... but the file is a pdf file.
Is it possible to construct an url using
http://myserver/mycollection/.... /mypdffile.pdf
and share this url via OAI ?

Can you test my pdf files in your system and then tell me what about ?

Best regards

Luigi
