Previous: Archimedes Bundle Structure
An Archimedes bundle is a collection of one or more source texts and
related objects from the Archimedes Project Repository, arranged
according to the conventions specified in this document. Grouping
repository objects into bundles provides a convenient, meaningful
association of objects for upload to and download from the repository.
In addition, Arboreal implements certain default behaviors that
simplify working with primary texts in bundles:
- The bundle structure enables the Archimedes DTD and essential
related files to be stored separately from the primary text files and
to be referenced automatically by Arboreal and any XML-compliant
- When a primary text in an Archimedes bundle is loaded, Arboreal
automatically loads the main catalog file in the bundle.
- Morphology files in an Archimedes bundle are automatically
loaded as needed.
- The bundle structure allows Arboreal to find large page images
and thumbnail figures automatically.
