Description

In Metacat, metadata files are linked to data files via triples. Metacat knows
how to process triples and store them. If you don't use eml2beta6 (which has
triples) you're hosed with requards to linking metadata and data in metacat. We
need a generalized way to configure how different metadata standards link and
store data. I'm not totally sure how to do this...I'll have to think about it
more. Anyone else have any ideas? This is stopping me from using metacat with
eml2rc2 (along with bug 635).

History

#1 Updated by Chad Berkley about 17 years ago

Jing and I were just talking and I think what we need to do is reorganize
metacat to use a metadata plugin architecture similar to the monarch
architecture. That way, when we add a new metadata standard, we just need to
add a plugin to handle it. We just need to reorganize metacat so that there is
one interface into the metadata/data handling systems.

I think we had talked about this a while back when Matt was in Santa Barbara
last spring.

For eml2, we still use relation table to store the relationship between data
and metadata.
