Demian, David, hi!
Yes, I knew that once, the diference between these two tickects but totally forgot about so that’s why I linked both.
Yes, I remember this one was about providing z39.50 support (make available VuFind index to be searched via external clients using z39.50 protocol).
This would be great for a lot of purposes, mainly to use within our official (UA) reference manager software, Thomson Reuters’ EndNote, to perform queries in our local VuFind (or others) within it, and retrieve the desired records, as the other integrated local sources, besides the OPAC, do not offer such capability (DSpace and OJS – but they do allow export to Endnote).
Making a simple google search, https://www.google.pt/search?q=z39.50+solr,
one finds at the first entry, although from 2008, a possible way to do it; I mean it’s better to connect the service to SOLR than to a VuFind layer over it, right?
Thanks and sorry, but I totally forgotten about the purpose and difference of these two tickets; their new name make much easier to identify their purpose.
EDIT: and I see that I've placed that difference in my comment above, dated 18/May/11 3:05 PM... :|
Thank you, Demian, for your above average (to say the least) memory! :)
