In this paper we will describe what comprises the minimal standard compliant OAI-PMH server implementation and demonstrate a standalone Java based implementation of a OAI-PMH digital repository server, primarily aimed at small online publishers. The Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) is a protocol established for harvesting (or collecting) metadata descriptions of records in an archive so that services can be built using metadata from a number of repositories. It provides facilities for metadata exchange between applications, ensuring metadata standardization and validation. The built proof-of-concept server is very fast and lightweight since it does not rely on external clientserver implementations for database access; but rather it uses embedded SQLite database. It provides the repository functions with only the fraction of the load and dependencies of other similar implementations.
