Also includes mappings to invoke the scripts and inbuilt features via the UI.
The majority of the WAT functionality is powered by JS or WS files.
This section describes the process of converting your local data to AGRIS AP compliant XML documents.
The fact that the resource itself is not required to be attached to the metadata makes it easy to control access rights on it.
The AGRIS AP is accompanied by a DTD The production and export of XML resources from local databases to the AGRIS AP model (see Figure 1 below) is facilitated when the source DB is XML-enabled, that is if it supports extensions for transferring data between XML documents and their own data structures.
The following four steps briefly describe the process of generating valid AGRIS XML records from proprietary XML-enabled databases: Figure 1: The AGRIS AP XML production process The Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH in short), “provides an application-independent interoperability framework based on metadata harvesting”.
Implementing the OAI protocol, data providers are able to generate well formed and valid XML data, by mapping their local repositories to a common DC metadata format. Library of Life Sciences as data provider has implemented the OAI protocol, and exposed their metadata to the AGRIS harvester by means of a unique identifier (URI).
