[netCDFJava #AFR-758833]: NcML and NetCDF-4 expanded data model

Hi Timothy:

Its a bit embarrassing as I thought that I had NcML working on the full 
extended model, but on closer look there are some things not yet implemented. 
Ill let you know when i have an estimate when the implementation will be 


> I'm working at EUMETSAT (European Organisation for the Exploitation of 
> Meteorological Satellites) and we're looking to use the netCDF-4 expanded 
> data model as the basis of our format specifications for our next generation 
> of MTG instruments.
> We already have some products in the netCDF classic model and we use a number 
> of XML-based tools to handle these. The tools use a description of the 
> products in NcML.
> The current NcML schema (2.2) does not appear to yet cover the full expanded 
> model (enumerated variables, unsigned variables, etc. are not yet 
> implemented).
> Can you give me any indication of timescales for when the expanded model 
> features might be added to the schema as we would like to be able to produce 
> XML descriptions of our datasets and better still, NcML descriptions.
> Many thanks for your response,
