Hello all,

I wonder if anyone knows whether the DSpace 7 API is backward-compatible with Symplectic Elements' Repository Tools (RT2)?

We are upgrading DSpace and integrating with Symplectic Elements.

Best wishes,

Joseph

Hi Joseph,

DSpace 7 should be backwards compatible with the existing Symplectic Elements Repository Tools, provided that you enable the SWORDv2 interface and install the _old_ REST API (v6) alongside the brand new REST API  (as their RT2 tools require the old REST API and SWORDv2 from my understanding).  Both of those are options in the DSpace 7 setup: https://wiki.lyrasis.org/display/DSDOC7x/Installing+DSpace#InstallingDSpace-BackendInstallation

That said, this backwards compatibility has NOT been fully tested with Symplectic yet.  But, I'm aware of one institution having already started such testing with Symplectic's support...and I am waiting on the results of that testing.

I'm also aware the Symplectic is planning to update their RT2 tools to use the new DSpace 7 REST API (for everything).  Once that release is completed, it's possible the old REST API (v6) and SWORDv2 would no longer be necessary to enable in your DSpace 7 site.  But, last I heard, that work is scheduled for mid-to-late 2022. You'd have to get in touch with Symplectic for more details on that effort.

Hi Tim and Joseph, 

Our work towards introducing a new DSpace 7 integration for Elements is progressing well. The first phase of the integration will be included in our release next week (Elements v6.8) and will allow organisations to establish a DSpace 7 repository as a data source for Elements. The second phase of the integration introducing deposit functionality should be included in our release after that (Elements v6.9) which is due for release in mid July. 

If you'd like some additional information about the integration please feel free to get in touch with our team via the Symplectic Support site. 

Best wishes

Kate
