I'm afraid not. It currently orders them alphabetically by the name. A quick hack when I needed our test server datasets ordered. Adding a sorting capability is on my list of tasks for the catalog generator. > The reason I'm asking is that I'm using (bastardizing?) the catalog > generator to create a DODS Aggregation Server catalog (with editing), > and the order that the files are being aggregated is defaulting to the > order that I get them from the THREDDS catalog generator.

Creating DODS AggServer config files is also on my list for the catalog generator. I'm planning on focusing on the catalog generator for a few weeks starting towards the end of May. A refactoring of the code; some rethinking of how the datasetSource, datasetFilter, and datasetNamer elements are handled and how they interact (sort and aggServer probably fall in here); and adding other metadata capabilities. So, keep the ideas coming. Ethan -- Ethan R. Davis Telephone: (303) 497-8155 Software Engineer Fax: (303) 497-8690 UCAR Unidata Program Center E-mail: address@hidden P.O.
