Re: AddeURLConnection - update

Hi Mey,

The new version of AddeURLConnection defaults to port 112 on the server, which should provide the data in gzipped format. Unfortunately, the ADDE server you are connecting to is running McIDAS version 2002. Gzip format was added to McIDAS in 2003 I believe.

You can override this default by specifying the port and compress format in the URL eg:
&port=503&compress=compress

I've tried the above & that should work for you (and using compress should be quicker). To get uncompressed data, you could try:
&port=500&compress=none (or NO_COMPRESS I suppose)

I haven't tried this option.

Cheers,

James

Hi all:
I am using AddeURLConnection to read satellite images. My old version of VisAD allowed me to read uncompressed data. To read the gzip-compressed satellite images I have updated to the current version ( of VisAD). This allows me to read only the gzip-compressed satellite images. If I want to read the uncompressed sat - images as well, are there any work around. I tried setting compress=none or NO_COMPRESS, without any success.

Any hints, thoughts?

Thanks
