code4lib 2011 - Enhancing the Performance and Extensibility of the XC’s MetadataServicesToolkit

Learn how we increased the performance of the XC Metadata Services Toolkit (MST) by over 900%. Our first release performed too slowly with degrading performance with large record batches and we needed to enable the MST to process a library’s entire catalog in a reasonable amount of time on a common server. The MST was also intended to be extensible. Libraries will almost certainly want to customize this process in some way. Thus our second goal was to make it is as easy as possible for a developer to write a service which can be plugged into the MST.

2010 ACOC Seminar - Canberra, Australia - eXtensible Catalog Software Portfolio

The eXtensible Catalog Project has developed four open-source software toolkits that enable libraries to build and share their own web- and metadata-focused applications on top of a service-oriented architecture that incorporates Solr in Drupal, a robust metadata management platform, and OAI-PMH and NCIP-compatible tools that interact with legacy library systems in real-time. XC"s Metadata Services Toolkit allows libraries to orchestrate and sequence metadata processing services on large batches of metadata.
