REPOX - Data Aggregation and Interoperability Manager
REPOX is a framework to manage data spaces. It comprises several
channels to import data from data providers, services to transform
data between schemas according to user's specified rules, and
services to expose the results to the exterior.
This tailored version of REPOX aims to provide to all the TEL and Europeana partners a
simple solution to import, convert and expose their bibliographic data via
OAI-PMH, by the following means:
- Cross platform
It is developed in Java, so it can be deployed in any
operating system that has an available Java virtual machine.
- Easy deployment
It is available with an easy installer, which includes
all the required software.
- Support for several data formats and encodings
It supports UNIMARC and MARC21 schemas, and encodings in ISO 2709 (including several variants),
MarcXchange or MARCXML. During the course of the TELplus project, support
will be added for other possible encodings required by the partners.
- Data crosswalks
It offers crosswalks for converting UNIMARC and MARC21 records to simple
Dublin Core as also to TEL-AP (TEL Application
Profile). A simple user interface makes it possible to customize these
crosswalks, and create new ones for other formats.
