Hi Mark:

Have you looked at StructBuilder, command-line tool used to create Communities & Collections from XML files:

Not sure if this fits your needs, but might be worth examining,

Hope this helps,

Folks -

I need a way to create an empty collection from the command line. We are automating the ingestion of newspaper PDF's and the structure-build command will allow me to do everything I need except create a collection by itself in a separate step. The community that the collection belongs to will already be established.

I'm using Dspace 3.0 on Ubuntu 12.10 server.

Any ideas?

Thanks again!
