OAI-PMH implementation in Java

OAI4J is a free and open source client library for OAI-PMH and OAI-ORE. The project is written in Java and was developed by the National Library of Sweden. The project was registered on Sourceforge on March 12; the latest release, 0.6 Beta 1, was March 18.
It can be used to harvest metadata from OAI-PMH compliant repositories. It can also be used to create new OAI-ORE Resource Maps from scratch, to parse existing ones and to serialize them to xml.
