Tracking the versions of the Orlando publishing services used during a publication
A publishing process in Orlando uses a number of Services, available within bundle of services of the Orlando OSGi (Open Service Gateway initiative) platform.
Each publication generated by Orlando tracks in detail the version of each services bundle used at generation time. This traceability allows a fast inventory of the publications that can benefit from a new service, or of an improved version of a service.
We can take as example the availability of a new OCR service, where the publication could provide its figures and “image” PDF to this new service, in order to extract new metadata for the search engine.
