Rapid Visual OAI Tool (RVOT) allows the user to graphically construct a mapping from a native format (currently supported are RFC1807, Marc subset & COSATI) to oai_dc format and to create an OAI-PMH-compliant repository. The tool is self-contained; it comes with a lightweight http server and OAI-PMH request handler and is written in Java.
