A developer-friendly Java client for the Fedora Commons Repository REST API.
Create a new Fedora object as easily as:
Or, to add a datastream:
File f = new File("/tmp/Hyperballad.mp3"); addDatastream("test:pid", "DS1").controlGroup("M").content(f).execute(client);
Optional properties are just that: optional. And when you do need one, it's clearly labeled rather than lost in an opaque series of null arguments. Compare:
addDatastream("test:pid", "DS2").controlGroup("M") .dsLocation("http://localhost:8080/fedora/get/fedora-system:ContentModel-3.0/DC") .mimeType("text/xml").execute(client);
with something like the following:
apim.addDatastream("test:pid", "DS3", null, null, true, "text/xml", null, "http://localhost:8080/fedora/get/fedora-system:ContentModel-3.0/DC", "M", "A", null, null, null);

- Fedora 3.5 (earlier 3.x versions should work as well, minus some features)
- Java 6
fedora-client is now available via Maven Central. As of version 0.1.8, fedora-client is provided as two artifacts:
- fedora-client-core, which supports Fedora's REST API and riSearch
- fedora-client-messaging, which supports Fedora's Messaging
Both artifacts are also available as -with-dependencies jars, which bundle their respective dependencies in a single jar for use with non-Maven projects.
Download the source, e.g.
git clone git://github.com/mediashelf/fedora-client.git
Build the project
cd fedora-client mvn install
fedora-client ships with a number of integration tests that require a running instance of Fedora that has the ResourceIndex module enabled. Set the testing properties (e.g. username, password) in pom.xml, or to skip the integration tests entirely:
mvn install -DskipTests
