Question: Is this part of the aggregation work that you doing that
will not use ncml?
yes, at least it does not use NcML right now.
Comment: I really like these kinds of things in Java (e.g., their Date
stuff) but for other languages they can be a pain. One way you can
simplify implementations in other languages is to specify which parts
you're actually going to use. Languages like C++ and Python can do
this stuff - there's almost always a library out there - but it's nice
to know how much users will need.
i agree. but the getPathMatcher() seems to have a clear spec, and at
least it would be a clear reference implementation if it had to be
ported. However, I need to study it closer.
