I have tested quite a few API's offering OAI-MHP datasets online. Along the way I learned that no any of these sets offered valid and pure Dublin Core data. Does anybody knows of a valid dataset with which I can test the OAI-MHP Harvest Plugin?
My aim is to test it first and learn how it works, before I ask somebody to write a OAI-MHP API for a new museum collection management system I intend to use in the near future. Thanks in advance for helping.
I tried 2 of these datasets ( http://omeka.org/codex/Harvestable_Omeka_OAI_sets ) and they gave some interesting error messages:
Set Spec 23
Set Name Photographs
Metadata Prefix oai_dc
Base URL http://www.stmarylaw.org/oai-pmh-repository/request

So they are not harvestable stricktly speaking.
Problem Solved! Cli problem was the issue here.
