Apologies if this message is inappropriate for this list, but I could
not find a feedback/contact address on the MARCXML page.
I am trying to test Marc to Unicode character conversion using the
MARCXML Toolkit found at
http://www.loc.gov/standards/marcxml/index.html. Aside from the fact
that the documentation is sparse (to be generous), there seems to be an
error in invoking the Unicode conversion scheme. On the command line,
calling the UnicodeConverter method results in a NoSuchMethodError:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.marc4j.util.MarcWriter.setCharacterConverter(Z)V
at gov.loc.marc.UnicodeConverter.main(Unknown Source)
Can anyone tell me if a.) this is a known bug, b.) I'm calling the wrong
method, c.) there is a work-around, d.) who I can contact to ask about
this (who is the programmer responsible?), or e.) if I should look for
Thanks in advance and apologies if this is the wrong place to ask.
