Harvesting an ARCSDE Node

This is a harvesting protocol for metadata stored in an ArcSDE installation.

Adding an ArcSDE harvester


Additional installation steps are required to use the ArcSDE harvester because it needs proprietary ESRI java api jars to be installed. See the Developers Manual, Settings for Harvester type arcsde

The harvester identifies the ESRI metadata format: ESRI ISO, ESRI FGDC to apply the required xslts to transform metadata to ISO19139
