At this moment, xEAC supports the insertion of CPF Relations and Resource Relations. This aspect of the application is undergoing development, but it supports rudimentary linking to other EAC-CPF records in the existing eXist collection and the creation of EAC record stubs.
See screenshot below:
When the record is saved, the records to which the current record has been linked are updated to point back to the source record. If a CPF Relation is removed, the target record is also edited to remove the link back to the source record. Note: Relation modifications other than create/delete are not yet supported.
Rather than clicking the '@' link to associate the current record to a different, existing, one, type a name into the Relation Entry text box. After text is entered, a 'Create Record' link will appear. Click this link to launch a popup window for generating a RecordID and specifying xlink attributes. When the EAC-CPF record is saved, a new record will be created with the RecordID. It will contain a maintenanceEvent about its automatic creation by xEAC and link back to the source record.
This functions much like the CPF Relations, but the xlink:href attribute should point to an external resource.
