GetDoc over OAI download naming scheme

Reported by: ak19 Owned by: nobody
Priority: moderate Milestone: Possible 2.88 Release
Component: Downloading Severity: minor
Keywords: Cc:


1. we built a collection available over OAI, and in the Import Options, we set OIDtype to "assigned" and OIDmetadata to "ex.File.FileName?" (although we think you could also try ex.Source, to avoid relying on embeddedmetadata). 2. Then at the end of etc/oai.cfg, the following mapping was inserted:

oaimapping oaipdf:ex.File.FileName oai_dc.identifier

3. Finally, we used GLI to connect to the OAI server to download the 2 documents in our small oai collection made available over the GS OAI server. These documents came out named as: pdf01pdf-1.pdf, pdf03pdf-1.pdf

The suffixed "-1" numbering scheme is a count to ensure that files downloaded with the same name are stored under unique filename.

Dr Bainbride and John Rose independently suggested that the first file of a name need not have -1 suffixed, and that subsequent files of the same name could use the numbering instead.
