Description

There seems to be problem in replicating datapackages with links that contain
the '&' character.
In particular, consider the knb-lter-gce.232.5 package. Using morpho and KNB, the
Online Distribution element is:

http://gce-lter.marsci.uga.edu/lter/asp/db/send_file.asp?name=metacat-user&ail=none&filiation=LNO&tify=0&cession=INV-GCEM-0412b1&lename=INV-GCEM-0412b1_1_0.TXT

while in ecogrid it is:

http://gce-lter.marsci.uga.edu/lter/asp/db/send_file.asp?name=metacat-user&il=none&iliation=LNO&ify=0&ession=INV-GCEM-0412b1&ename=INV-GCEM-0412b1_1_0.TXT

Note the loss of characters after the '&'s !!!

This is making it impossible to retreive data in Kepler (and in Morpho)

History

#1 Updated by Dan Higgins over 13 years ago

Dan, Sid and all,

Note that for reference the online distribution url in the native GCE eml
document is as follows, with appropriately escaped ampersands:

http://gce-lter.marsci.uga.edu/lter/asp/db/send_file.asp?name=metacat-user&email=none&affiliation=LNO&notify=0&accession=INV-GCEM-0412b1&filename=INV-GCEM-0412b1_1_0.TXT

Here's a direct link to the latest version of the doc (which should be
synchronized to the LNO Metacat in the next day or so):

http://gce-lter.marsci.uga.edu/lter/asp/db/send_eml.asp?detail=full&metacat=yes&missing=NaN&delimiter=tab&accession=INV-GCEM-0412b1

Good luck tracking it down.

#2 Updated by Saurabh Garg over 13 years ago

The bug is fixed in code. The KNB and LTER databases need to be fixed now so that they have the correct versions of the documents. Right now the documents which are replicated are not same as the original documents because of the bug mentioned.

#3 Updated by Saurabh Garg over 13 years ago

This bug is fixed. All the GCE documents in KNB database are fixed also. Closing the bug.
