The HDF Group July 8, Summer ESIP Federation Meeting / HDF and HDF-EOS Workshop XVII Adding new services for HDF in THREDDS Data Server (TDS) Hyo-Kyung Joe Lee and Ted Habermann The HDF Group 1
Summer ESIP Federation Meeting A User Story 2 I would like to examine a big HDF file X with command line tool Y that runs on platform Z. However, my mobile platform is not Z. So, I can’t run Y. X is too big for my device as well.
Summer ESIP Federation Meeting Web Service is the answer. 3 Almost all platforms support web browser.
Summer ESIP Federation Meeting Web Service Solution 4 Run web server on Z. The server executes command Y on X. Send output over the web. THREDDS Data Server is a good candidate.
Summer ESIP Federation Meeting Why THREDDS Data Server? 5 Portable – 100% Java Easy to add a new service Data and services go together. Maximum control on services with data
Summer ESIP Federation Meeting How to add a new service 6 1.Create a YServiceController class (e.g., H4MapServiceController.java) 2.handleRequest() method Invokes runtime.exec(command). 3.Read stdout and build a string outStr. 4.Return ResponseEntity (outStr,…) 5.Set up catalog for Y service for X data. 6.Run the custom TDS on Z.
Summer ESIP Federation Meeting New HDF Services for non-Java apps 7 HDF4 File Content Map (h4map) For HDF4 files only C / Linux & Mac HDF5 JSON (h5json) For HDF5 files only C++ NCO/CF checker (ncdismember) For both HDF4 and HDF5 C/C++/Python
Summer ESIP Federation Meeting Quick Demo 8 ds/catalog.html Some files are located at FTP server and mounted via NFS, not at TDS. Services are triggered based on file extension.
Summer ESIP Federation Meeting Benefit 9 Try URLs with online XML / JSON browser. xmlgrid.net jsonviewer.stack.hu You can develop your own XML/JSON apps on top of the new HDF web services. Run command while browsing data – a good testbed for a new product.
Summer ESIP Federation Meeting Future Work 10 Supplying command line options? Generalization of CLI services through Catalog? What other HDF services do you want to see? (e.g., GeoJSON)
