Hi Ankita,

HDF5Exception: HDF5File:
ncsa.hdf.hdf5lib.exceptions.HDF5FunctionArgumentException: Inappropriate

I do not know the details of the VisAD HDF5 reader implementation, so I may
be off base here, but from that exception I would guess the reader simply
cannot handle the structure of your H5 data.

I cant open this site.

I believe the more recent URL is:

Another way to read many HDF5 files in Java, without needing JNI, is to use
Unidata's NetCDF Java library:

It does have certain limitations in what it can do though. And neither of
those links by itself will be enough to transform your file into a VisAD
data object. Unfortunately, as far as I know, no one is actively maintaining
the VisAD HDF5 file adapter, so you may be on your own.

I agree with Curtis Sir. The better way would be to use NetCDF Java library.
Its quite easy and understandable. A lot HDF5 adapters have been written using that.
