PURL Legacy Loader Now Open Source

A legacy loader is available to take old OCLC version 1 Persistent URL (PURL) database dumps and upload PURLs into the new project’s RESTful API. This is not production code, but is provided in the hope that it may be useful to operators of old PURL servers wishing to migrate to a more modern PURL server. The legacy loader has been released under an Apache 2.0 license.

To get the legacy loader, use Subversion to check it out like this:

svn co

Check out the code and follow the directions in the file README.txt.

This information is also available at the PURL Project's Download Area.
