Name

record_transform — Metaproxy Module that performs record transformations

DESCRIPTION

This filter acts on Z39.50 present requests and Z39.50 search requests, and let all other types of packages and requests pass untouched. Its use is twofold: blocking Z39.50 present/search requests that the backend server does not understand or can not honor, and transforming the present syntax and elementset name according to the rules specified, to fetch only existing record formats, and transform them on-the-fly to requested record syntaxes.

The allowed record present syntax and element name are described in multiple <retrieval> elements inside the <retrievalinfo> element. The syntax attribute is mandatory, but the name attribute may be omitted, in which case any element name is accepted. An additional identifier attribute can be added to explicitly describe the Z39.50 identifier string.

The <retrieval> element and the content is described in the Retrieval Facility section of the YAZ manual.

From Metaproxy version 1.3.26 and onwards, the backend conversion may also use USEMARCON. If USEMARCON is enabled, the backend may include a usemarcon element with two attributes: stage1 and stage2 that point to conversion files as interpreted by USEMARCON. One or both must be given.

SCHEMA

Schema is in two parts.. One for the filter itself, and one for the retrieval info.

EXAMPLES

A typical configuration looks like this:

    <filter type="record_transform">
      <retrievalinfo  xmlns="http://indexdata.com/yaz" version="1.0">
        <retrieval syntax="xml" name="dc"
                   identifier="info:srw/schema/1/dc-v1.1">
          <backend syntax="usmarc" name="F">
            <marc inputformat="marc" outputformat="marcxml"
                  inputcharset="marc-8"/>
            <xslt stylesheet="../xml/xslt/MARC21slim2DC.xsl"/>
          </backend>
        </retrieval>
        <retrieval syntax="opac"/>
        <retrieval syntax="xml" name="opac">
          <backend syntax="opac" name="F">
          <marc inputformat="marc" outputformat="marcxml"
                inputcharset="marc-8"/>
          </backend>
        </retrieval>
        <retrieval syntax="usmarc">
          <backend syntax="usmarc" name="F">
          </backend>
        </retrieval>
        <retrieval syntax="usmarc" name="C">
	  <backend syntax="unimarc" name="F">
            <usemarcon stage1="/etc/usemarcon/uni2us/uni2us.ini"/>
          </backend>
        </retrieval>
      </retrievalinfo>
    </filter>
