Controlled-Vocabulary Add-on update - Patch for DSpace 1.4.2
This patch adds a few improvements to the controlled vocabulary add-on
currently present in DSpace:
1) The Node Schema (see [dspace]/docs/controlledvocabulary.xsd) has been
updated to support other types of relationships and/or properties that are
part of a true thesaurus, and now all elements in this structure are properly
processed and displayed by the add-on.
2) The add-on recognizes thesaurus/controlled vocabularies described in SKOS
standard schema. This vocabulary can be created according to the W3C
recommendations and must be saved with the extension ".skos".
3) In the DC metadata fields you wish to control, it is now possible to
configure distinct vocabularies associated to specific communities. You may
also define one or more generic vocabularies to be used by default on the
rest of the communities. To use this functionality you have to edit the file
[dspace]/config/input- forms.xml and place a new "controlled-vocabularies"
element under the <field> that you want to control.
