Re: hdf4/hdf5 [Fwd: Re: HDF4 support]

The Webwinds project out of JPL (Lee Elson) had a pure Java HDF library. Have you had a look at that? If the library was adequate, what would it take to add it as a service?

Hi Rob:

We are looking for funding (or another group) to add an HSF4/HDF- EOS reader to the CDM and THREDDS. The NCSA library is in C, but we require 100% Java, so we cant use it.

Any ideas from anyone on where we might find resources would be welcome.

I guess we also have a large supply of HDF4 files.   I would 2nd the
motion for HDF4 support in Thredds :)
NCSA seems to be a fully operational hdf4 and hdf5 library for java.
How much effort would it take to adapt this for use in THREDDS?

I was wondering if anybody has HDF4 support working in THREDDS.
No, I think only HDF5.
The THREDDS Data Server only serves data that the netCDF-java library
can read. As Yuan said, it can't read HDF4 but can read HDF5 (though it isn't a full HDF5 implementation, so there are HDF5 files that it can't
However, if you are looking for OPeNDAP access, the OPeNDAP project
( does have an HDF4 server.
