Adding new services for HDF in THREDDS Data Server (TDS)

Hyo-Kyung Joe Lee and Ted Habermann

The HDF Group


A User Story

I would like to examine a big HDF file X with command line tool Y that runs on platform Z.

However, my mobile platform is not Z.

So, I can’t run Y.

X is too big for my device as well.


Web Service is the answer.

Almost all platforms support web browser.


Web Service Solution

Run web server on Z.

The server executes command Y on X.

Send output over the web.

THREDDS Data Server is a good candidate.


Why THREDDS Data Server?

Portable – 100% Java

Easy to add a new service

Data and services go together.

Maximum control on services with data


How to add a new service

  • Create a YServiceController class (e.g., H4MapServiceController.java)

  • handleRequest() method Invokes runtime.exec(command).

  • Read stdout and build a string outStr.

  • Return ResponseEntity<string>(outStr,…)

  • Set up catalog for Y service for X data.

  • Run the custom TDS on Z.


New HDF Services for non-Java apps

  • HDF4 File Content Map (h4map)

    • For HDF4 files only

    • C / Linux & Mac

  • HDF5 JSON (h5json)

    • For HDF5 files only

    • C++

  • NCO/CF checker (ncdismember)

    • For both HDF4 and HDF5

    • C/C++/Python


Quick Demo

http://eosdap.hdfgroup.uiuc.edu:8887/thredds/catalog.html

Some files are located at FTP server and mounted via NFS, not at TDS.

Services are triggered based on file extension.


Benefit

Try URLs with online XML / JSON browser.

  • xmlgrid.net

  • jsonviewer.stack.hu

    You can develop your own XML/JSON apps on top of the new HDF web services.

    Run command while browsing data – a good testbed for a new product.


Future Work

Supplying command line options?

Generalization of CLI services through Catalog?

What other HDF services do you want to see?

(e.g., GeoJSON)
