Well, its been a while since the last post so here goes...

I've now taken a different approach to the OAI-PMH layer for cocoon, using Xindice as the backend and writing my own 'crawler' solved a *LOT* of the problems I was having with using Lucene. Almost got bits working now, GetRecord is more or less done, just about to start writing in the rest of it. Its not back for 2 XSP files, a Xindice database, and a couple of stylesheets all in all :)

Had a reasonable week at work so far too, which is good, even got to go home early yesterday (*YAY*). Hoping to have a demonstratable copy of the OAI stuff by the end of tommorow, which will be nice :)

Been a bit of a pain that I have been stuck in this office with the phones most of the week rather than doing exclusive OAI work, but hey, it could have been worse. Generally I've not been bothered and have been able to get on, but it would have been nicer to have been in the other office with my home machine :)

Hey ho, anything else? Probably. Dunno what yet though...

Maybe more later. Lets see :)
