Okay, I've got my tester up as a site. Try
On that page, you'll see place to put a pointer to your database. I ran
it on this http://alcme.oclc.org/srw/search/ORPublications database
Right now, it tries a few ways to get the explain record. Once it's
done that, it walks through the listed indexes, trying to use Scan to
get some valid search terms.
Having done that, it tries doing those searches. If we've gotten no
terms via scan, then it walks through all the indexes again, trying a
search for "dog".
It does little to validate the search response yet. It does nothing to
test CQL compliance.
It does try to get the stylesheet, if a pointer to one is returned and
tries to apply that stylesheet to the returned document.
I'm open to suggestions for improvements.
There is a checkbox for adding the database to my SRW registry. It
doesn't do anything yet, but I do intend for it to work. The registry
will be available as an SRW database.
This isn't ready for primetime yet, but I think we can make a useful
something out of it pretty quickly. In the meantime, let's keep that
URL between us.
p.s. My wife is going in for knee replacement surgery Friday morning,
so it may be a couple of days before I see your responses. Please be
