Hi Dan, > 1. THREDDS is a servlet that runs on Tomcat. It isn't broken up into 2 > pieces one for the interface, one for the data cataloging and distribution, > correct? The THREDDS Data Server (TDS) is a single web application (set of servlets) that runs under Tomcat. It includes the HTML interface, the data cataloging, and various data distribution services. > 2. THREDDS can be made aware of data by supplying it NcML documentation in > the form of NetCDF ML? The TDS is made aware of datasets through a set of configuration catalogs. There is more information available on the details of the config files from our TDS documentation at http://motherlode.ucar.edu:8080/thredds/docs/. Generally NcML documents are not required. NcML is mainly used for defining aggregations of datasets. > 3. How would one remove a data reference from the catalog? There are filtering mechanisms in the TDS configuration files that can be used to screen out certain files so they are not visible via the TDS. More on this at http://motherlode.ucar.edu:8080/thredds/docs/datasetScan/index.html, see the section "Including Only the Desired Files". > 4. If THREDDS is a servlet than Tomcat needs to be running in a location > where the data can be access via local file references? Currently, that is correct.
