Description

Next release. Again, this will be rare. Not much to be gained from a URL reference.

Matt, Mark:

Do you think that handling references to online URLs should be a
requirement for the first release of the Data Manager Library (1.0.0), or recorded as an enhancement for the next release (1.1.0)?

Thanks,
Duane

Hi, Duane:

Yeah, current eml parser coudn't handle the reference for online url.
It can handle reference for attributeList and attribute. We can add
supporting online url reference as new feature into our data manager
library.

Thanks,

Jing

Hi Jing,

Inigo and I have looked into the second issue below a

little more (the

question about FTP protocol). The problem was not the FTP

protocol --

we changed to HTTP and the Data Manager library had the

same problem downloading the data. The problem is that the metadata
is using a reference to the URL to the data like this:

<dataTable>
.
.
.
<distribution>
<references>distributionReference</references>
</distribution>

In another part of the EML, we have:

<distribution id="distributionReference"> <online>
<url>
http://lternet.lternet.edu/~isangil/NIN/nin_met_1982.txt
</url>
</online>
</distribution>

Because of the reference, Data Manager has no value for the

entity identifier, and the download handler is not able to download
the

data. So it seems that this is a legal EML document but the

EML parser is not able to follow the reference to the URL for the
data.

Here is a link to the document that is having the problem:

http://lternet.lternet.edu/~isangil/NIN/nin_lter_met_1982.xml

Could you take a look?

Thanks,
Duane
