Unsupported Release

This documentation relates to DSpace 1.8.x, an old, unsupported version. Looking for another version? See all documentation.

As of January 2015, DSpace 1.8.x is no longer supported. We recommend upgrading to a more recent version of DSpace. See DSpace Software Support Policy.

The embedded SWORD Client allows a user (currently restricted to an administrator) to copy an item to a SWORD server. This allows your DSpace installation to deposit items into another SWORD-compliant repository (including another DSpace install).

At present this functionality has only been developed for the XMLUI and is disabled by default.

Enabling the SWORD Client

To enable the SWORD Client uncomment the SwordClient Aspect in [dspace]/config/xmlui.xconf file.

<aspect name="SwordClient" path="resource://aspects/SwordClient/" />
