[netCDFJava #RUP-211659]: toolsUI

Greetings Fan!

I'm not sure I understand the question correctly, but are you trying to make an 
NCML representation of the metadata in a netCDF file? If so, toolsUI is your 
tool :-) However, it gets better! You can use the netCDF Java library from the 
command line to write out the NCML file for you, like so:

java -classpath toolsUI.jar ucar.nc2.NCdump <NetCDF-3 filename> -ncml

or, if you have the netCDF C library installed, go for:

ncdump -x <NetCDF filename>

Check out  http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/ncml/ for more info, 
including all the fun ways you can use NCML in enhance the metadata within a 
netCDF file. Now, if this is not all what you were looking for, them I 
apologize for missing the boat. Please let me know if this answers your
