Hello All,

In the description, I see mentioned that eaditor can be configured to
work with other systems like Fedora Commons.

That got me wondering, does anyone have any experience of running
eaditor with a Dspace repository? I'd love to be able to incorporate
eaditor into a Dspace project I'm currently working on.

Since DSpace has a REST API, it should be theoretically possible to load/edit/save items in a DSpace repository.  I haven't used DSpace, so EADitor-DSpace interoperability doesn't exist out-of-the-box yet.  You'd have to edit the XForms files to point to your repository and provide the authentication information.

Thanks for the reply. I think at this point I'll wait and explore my
options. How, though, might I reconfigure eaditor to work with Fedora
rather than the existing exist database? Is there documentation for
something like that somewhere? I've actually got a Fedora repository
running that I'd love to connect it to, but I don't see in the orbeon
or ead app files where to make those config changes.

This is really impressive work by the way. Kudos to you!
