How would I return a 404? Throw a file not found exception?
I think the right thing to do is to set the return code on the HttpResponse and return null from DatasetSource.getNetcdfFile() .
Ill have to look over the code to make sure that is handled correctly everywhere.
For the type of URL we were just dicussing, the DataSource does not run, just the IOSP code. The IOSP does not have the response object. In the past you've indicated that an IOException was about the only way to communicate an error. What it does now is not good. It should throw an exception rather than run on and try to parse the non-existent XML file, but still don't see how I could send a 404.
in that case i think you would throw a FileNotFoundException, add the real reason into the exception message. there may be some places where the code needs to deal with that, but the opendap server will work i think.
