OAI Harvester Object Library 2.0 B1 Released

Version 2.0 B1 of the OAIHarvesterObj developed by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign OAI Metadata Harvesting Project has been released.

This is an ActiveX DLL Class Library that supports the creation of OAI Harvesting services. This release supports the latest beta version of the OAI 2.0 protocol while also being backward compatible with versions 1.0 and 1.1 of the OAI protocol.

This release includes API documentation for the class library and also a simple command-line harvesting application, reap, which demonstrates how to use the class library in a Windows Scripting Host (WSH) environment.

This is our first beta release supporting the OAI 2.0 protocol, so comments, questions, and bug reports, are very welcome.

There will also be other OAI harvesting tools based on this class library forthcoming, so stay tuned...
