Customizing the DSpace Manakin XML User Interface
Bram Luyten & @mire colleagues
The DSpace XML user interface is based on Apache’s Cocoon framework, a framework built around the concepts of separation of concerns and component based development. During the bootcamp, @mire developers will provide a primer on customizing the DSpace interface, with concrete examples to allow hands-on coding. The envisioned outcome of this bootcamp is that participants get a good sense on “what goes where”: while customizations can be implemented in different ways, @mire’s developers will go deeper into the pro’s and cons of implementing on different layers.
Systems librarians, developers, DSpace enthusiasts
notions of Java, XML, XSLT, CSS.
Any previous experience with Java and DSpace will be very helpful.
A local installation of DSpace on the laptop that the participant will bring. This requires an apache Tomcat and PostgreSQL database.
