Overview

A OAI-PMH client shell allowing OAI Harvesting to be configured in an interactive manner. Typing `oai` on the command line starts the shell. The first time the shell is run it will prompt for the following configuration details:

  1. A storage directory for all harvested records. Harvests will be stored under this directory in a directory structure based on the date of the harvest.

  2. A log file directory.

  3. Email address(es) for sending daily harvesting activity reports.

  4. Network address of the SMTP server for sending mail.

After the initial configuration, new harvest sites can be added by using the 'new' command. Sites are identified via nickname assigned by the user. After choosing a nickname, provide the URL of a harvestable site, and the shell will prompt you for the rest of the configuration information.

The shell automatically pulls down the list of sets in the repository, and the supported metadata prefixes. Making it very simple to setup harvests.
