Several weeks ago I wrote asking for input regarding indexing EAD 1.0
using Livelink. After a bit of tinkering, the indexing of a test group of 1.0
instances was accomplished. However, delivering them over the Web, via
remained an impossible dream.
Now, I am happy to say, that after nearly a month of frustrating
David Gewirtz (our wonderful and talented systems programmer) and I were
able to put all of the pieces together and have Livelink serve up our test
The meaning of this message is that, for all of you working with OpenText
it is possible to upgrade to EAD 1.0.
Our 1.0 site is just for internal testing at this time, but since the answer
to our central server problem was quite simple, I want to share it
with any interested parties.
Even if this may be of no immediate value to Livelink users, I urge you to
this away for future reference, as it represents a change in the way Livelink
processes EAD 1.0 versus Beta - and because *it is not documented anywhere*.
So here's the fix:
In the current configuration the catalog file MUST RESIDE IN THE DIRECTORY
In addition, the DTD and its components (EADBASE.ENT, EADCHARS.ENT,
EADNOTAT.ENT) must also reside in this directory, although all of the iso
files may reside elsewhere and can be pointed to using a URL
There you go. Knock yourself out! (We certainly did.)
