The JLeRN Experiment

JISC's Learning Registry Node Experiment at Mimas

Alpha node

We installed the JLeRN “alpha” node on our new Ubuntu server on the weekend (Jan 21-22) before the Hackday.  But there was a bug which affected the indexes and thus document retrieval.

The LR developers in the U.S. resolved the bug promptly and we applied the fix on Jan 28th.

The node is here: http://alpha.mimas.ac.uk

The node supports all publish and retrieval services although we haven’t had a chance to test all of these yet.

The node is now open to the world except you need a username and password to publish documents.  The credentials you need to publish are:

Username: fred
Password: flintstone

Give it a go when you have a minute or two.

Examples:
http://alpha.mimas.ac.uk/status
http://alpha.mimas.ac.uk/description
http://alpha.mimas.ac.uk/obtain  [all documents in node, 100 at a time]
http://alpha.mimas.ac.uk/obtain?request_ID=http://dspace.jorum.ac.uk/xmlui/handle/123456789/1000
http://alpha.mimas.ac.uk/slice?any_tags=curve
http://alpha.mimas.ac.uk/slice?any_tags=magnetism

N.B.: The examples above fetch JSON documents.  Install an extension to your favourite browser so you can display the documents in a readable format; e.g., JSONview extension for Firefox.

Curl examples:
$ curl  -v http://alpha.mimas.ac.uk/obtain?request_ID=”http://alpha.mimas.ac.uk/obtain?request_ID=http://dspace.jorum.ac.uk/xmlui/handle/123456789/1000″
$ curl -Xv POST -H “Content-Type:application/json” “http://alpha.mimas.ac.uk/publish” -d @test_data.json -u fred

The Learning Registry Quick Reference Guide has more examples.
