DIENST-ETRDL Update Old Database

If you are using an old version of DIENST, you may have a rich collections of documents in your database.
The ETRDL version we distribute here implements additional functionalities that use a new bibliographic record format.
In this document we describe how to update your bibliographic records in order to reuse your old database with the new version of ETRDL.

To reuse your old database you must perform the following steps:

  1. Read the Configure & Install document to specify the database path during the installation procedure.
  2. Update the format of all existing bibliographic records
  3. Smart Update procedure
  4. Update all index files
  5. See an example of bibliographic record

The new bibliographic record

Update your bibliographic records according to the following syntax: Attention: Fields that have not been mentioned here can remain the same.

Smart Update Procedure

If your database contains a lot of documents, we suggest you to perform the following steps:
  1. open your web browser

  2. type the following URL in the location field:
    http://‹your Dienst home›/Dienst/Index/2.0/List-Contents
    (example: http://dienst.iei.pi.cnr.it/Dienst/Index/2.0/List-Contents)

  3. save the resulting page in a text file (masterbib.txt)

  4. edit masterbib.txt with a text editor to find and replace all occurences of the word that must be changed and then save the file

  5. open a shell and change directory to your database directory:
    example: cd /local1/hd0/DataBases/

  6. run the command "rm ./*/*/*.bib" - this command delete all bib files in your database!

  7. run
    "‹your path›/dienst/Config/auto_config.pl"
    command in order to reconfigure ETRDL system.


Note: this procedure is useful to replace "BIB-VERSION:: CS-TR-v2.1" with "BIB-VERSION:: CS-TR-v2.1E", the "KEYWORDS::" tag with "KEYWORD::" one, and similar cases.

Update all index files

Perform the following steps to update all index files:
  1. Run the command
    ‹your path›/dienst/Indexer/build-inverted-indexes.pl -b -n -s

  2. Run the command
    ‹your path›/dienst/Utilities/bin/reload-data

An example of bibliographic record

This example contains three ACM fields, two author fields, the mandatory abstract and the optional italian abstract with the specification of the language of local abstract and the language of document. Note that this bibliographic record does not include any MSC or free keywords fields.

ABSTRACT:: This document is aimed at providing fundamental information about the implementation of multimedia network services in a Internet or Intranet environment. It is targeted to network designers and network managers who need guidance before going into widening the range of services given by their network by adding the most recent multimedia aids to interpersonal network communication. This document is meant to be easy to read; it avoids going into details whenever is possible, rather it points to technical documents and information already available on the network. After having introduced the network requirements of multimedia communication and having identified, among available technologies, the IP multicast architect ure as the one with greater flexibility and universality, the document stays on this technology giving an overview of its protocols and their implementations; it also provides useful advices to build-up a suitable network infrastructure and precious information about problems to overcome. The documents then reviews popular applications and ends-up with foreseable work to be done in the future.
LOCABSTRACT::Scopo di questo documento e' fornire le informazioni fondamentali s ui servizi di rete multimediali realizzabili in ambiente Internet/Intranet. Esso e' destinato principalmente ai network designer e ai network manager che necessitano di un orientamento prima di ampliare i servizi resi dalla propria infrastruttura di re te includendo i piu' recenti ausili multimediali alla comunicazione interpersonale via rete. Il documento intende essere di relativamente facile lettura, tralascia ndo di entrare nei particolari ogni volta che sia possibile ma fornendo i riferimenti a i documenti tecnici e alle informazioni gia' disponibili in rete. Dopo aver intro dotto i requisiti posti a una rete dalle comunicazioni multimediali e aver individuato , tra le tecnologie rispondenti a tali requisiti, nell'architettura IP multicast quella c on maggiore flessibilita' e universalita', il documento si sofferma su questa tecno logia fornendo al lettore una panoramica dei protocolli e delle loro implementazioni, dei suggerimenti utili alla realizzazione della infrastruttura di rete adatta e delle preziosi informazioni sui problemi da superare. Il documento prosegue con una ra ssegna delle applicazioni piu' diffuse e si concluede con le ipotesi di lavoro per il f Il documento si avvale delle informazioni disponibili sulla rete Mbone (Multicast backbone e su quanto sviluppato da:
- il progetto europeo MICE (Multimedia Integrated Conferencing in Europe)
- il progetto europeo MERCI (Multimedia European Research Conferencing Integrat
- il gruppo di lavoro TERENA Networked Multimedia Applications
- il gruppo di lavoro RIPE su Mbone
- The IP Multicast Initiative
