Re: [CODE4LIB] SerSol 360Link API?

2010-04-19 Thread David Pattern
Hiya

We're using it to add e-holdings into to our OPAC, e.g. 
http://library.hud.ac.uk/catlink/bib/396817/

I've also tried using the API to add the coverage info to the availability 
text for journals in Summon (e.g. Availability: print (1998-2005)  electronic 
(2000-present)).

I've made quite a few tweaks to our 360 Link (mostly using jQuery), so I'm half 
tempted to have a go using the API to develop a complete replacement for 360 
Link.  If anyone's already done that, I'd be keen to hear more.

Is anyone using the SerSol 360Link API in a real-world production or 
near-production application?  If so, I'm curious what you are using it for, 
what your experiences have been, and in particular if you have information on 
typical response times of their web API.  You could reply on list or off list 
just to me. If I get interesting information especially from several sources, 
I'll try to summarize on list and/or blog either way.

I wrote to-JSON proxy a while ago:
http://libx.lib.vt.edu/services/link360/index.html

I found the Link360 doesn't handle load very well. Even a small burst of
requests leads to a spike in latency and error responses. I ask SS if this
was a bug or part of some intentional throttling attempt, but never received
a reply. Didn't pursue it further.

Re: [CODE4LIB] SerSol 360Link API?

2010-04-19 Thread HAYASHI Yutaka
Hi all,

Using 360 link api, our catalog shows availabilities (coverage ranges,
database or provider names) of e-journals on the top-right of the
screen.
E.g., https://op.kulib.kyoto-u.ac.jp/webopac/catdbl.do?bibid=SB00161282

Here some JavaScript code scrapes the title and issn from the catalog
page after loaded, and calls the api asynchronously. All what I did
for this was coding JavaScript (and Perl/CGI) scripts, and write
script src=... tags on the page.

Re: [CODE4LIB] SerSol 360Link API?

2010-04-19 Thread Jonathan Rochkind
Heh, what I _eventually_ want to do is develop a plugin for Umlaut to 
let it talk to SerSol 360Link -- so Umlaut could be your complete 
replacement for 360 Link, that comes with LOTS of extra features.  Keep 
it in mind as an option if you start heading that way! [As you know, I 
use Horizon too, so Umlaut already has some nice Horizon hooks].


Thanks for the info Dave. Do you have anything to say about response 
time of the SerSol API?
