Thanks Russ. It was me that asked. The HDF5 XML stuff is at: http://hdf.ncsa.uiuc.edu/HDF5/XML/ although the 1.6 versions won't be available until later this summer. My thinking is that there should be a straightfoward connection between NcML and the HDF5 XML, similar to the abstract mapping. In the case of XML, there might be a stylesheet to transform (see the old paper at: http://hdf.ncsa.uiuc.edu/HDF5/XML/nctoh5/writeup.htm for the vision.) I don't know if this will be in scope for this project, we'll have to see. On 2003.07.18 15:39 Russ Rew wrote:
Hi, In the teleconference we just had about the netCDF-4/HDF5 project, someone (Quincey? Bob?) asked about NcML. I recommend this document to see some of the intended uses for NcML: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/staff/caron/xml/NetcdfDataset.html Currently this sort of thing is supported for Java, but ultimately we hope to make it possible from C as well. Maybe you also have these kinds of uses in mind for your XML representation of HDF5 data. --Russ
