Name

query_rewrite — Metaproxy RPN Query Rewrite Module

DESCRIPTION

This module allows Z39.50 Type-1 queries to be arbitrarily rewritten using an XSLT stylesheet to specify the rewrite rules. This can be useful for several purposes, including the provision of index aliases (e.g. BIB-1 access-point 1, personal name, rewritten to access-point 1003, author); and protecting fragile Z39.50 servers from attribute combinations that cause them problems.

The Type-1 query is translated into an XML representation, transformed by an XSLT stylesheet whose path is specified in the filter configuration's <xslt> element, then translated back into a Type-1 query.

### Describe the XML representation.
