Re: [thredds] attach metadata to a dataset

Oliver,
This is probably not the expected behavior, but to generate the output for your example it seems you need to follow these steps:

1) Create a ThreddsMetadata object with the values you want (dataType, variable, etc) 2) Create an InvMetadata using this object setting inherited to true (new InvMetadata(ds, _true_, tm)) 3) Create another ThreddsMetadata object which can be blank and add your InvMetadata to it 4) Add this last ThreddsMetadata object to your dataset with InvDatasetImpl.setLocalMetadata()

Does that help at all?

hi all -

I am trying to  thredds.catalog API to generate a customized catalog,
one thing is not clear to me by looking at Java doc is how to
associate a metadata section to a dataset. For example, one sample
catalog I want to generate is:

   <dataset>
        <properties>  ...</property>
        <metadata inherited="true">
              <dataType>  GRID</dataType>
              <variables>  ...
        </metadata>

        <dataset>  ...</dataset>
   </dataset>

As I look at the the java API for InvDatasetImpl, I don't see how I
can put in this metadata structure.
Am I missing something here?

Thanks for help.


Oliver
