This is a version of the Ceridwen Self Issue Client which has been preconfigured for use in University of Oxford Libraries. 

Installation

  1. Install an up to date Java Runtime (for instance from https://adoptopenjdk.net/). Ensure that java is configured on tha path.
  2. Download OULSSelfIssue-NoVM.zip
  3. Extract the zip file into a suitable directory (e.g. c:\Program Files\Ceridwen.com\SelfIssue).  SelfIssue can be run by running SelfIssue.bat or SelfIssue.exe.
  4. Download the latest configuration file for Oxford which can be found here: config.xml
  5. Edit this file and change the following (they will have the initial value CHANGEME in config.xml):
    the library name located under XML Path: SelfIssue\UI\LibraryText_Text;
    the Port number located under XML Path: SelfIssue\Systems\SIP\Port to your unit-specific Self Issue port, which will have been emailed to library and IT staff. You can also request this from the OLIS Helpline;
     the e-mail address to send notifications to the library staff under XML Path: SelfIssue\Systems\Loggers\Logger\To.
  6. Place the edited config.xml in the subdirectory c:\Program Files\Ceridwen.com\SelfIssue\resources\com\ceridwen\selfissue\client\config\ replacing the existing config.xml file found there. (Assuming that you extracted the zip file to c:\Program Files\Ceridwen.com\SelfIssue).
  7. Run and test:
    • *Test Connection¬¶
    • Attempt checkout of valid and invalid patron/books
    • Check client starts and handles checkouts with network cable unplugged
    • Check spooler directories in c:\temp
    • Check entries replay when network replugged (restart client or wait 15 minutes)
    • To diagnose problems run SelfIssue using selfissue.bat at the commandline (whilst in the SelfIssue directory). This will display additional error logging information on the commandline console.
