Hyrax by OPeNDAP logo The 1.6.1 release:

  • NcML Module: Hyrax now supports a significant portion of the NcML 2.2 language with the new NcML Module. With this module, a data provider can augment datasets served on their local Hyrax server in the following ways:
    • Add, modify, or remove both attributes and variables
    • Combine multiple datasets into a single data set using "union" or "joinNew" aggregations. (Other NcML aggregation types are in progress).
    Please also see: Wiki documentation for the NcML Module.
  • Automatically generated THREDDS catalogs now have a 'file' service
  • Improvements to the netCDF file response (Hyrax 1.5 introduced netCDF as a return type for Hyrax).
  • HDF5 now has support for HDF EOS and a special mode for CF 1.0 compliant files.
  • HDF4 Bug fixes for HDF EOS.
  • Bug fixes and feature additions (Beta Release)


What to get: You will need the OLFS (which is a Java binary and runs on any computer with Java 1.5) and one set of the BES, dap-server and one or more data handlers. We're including libdap here as well to cut down on the amount of hunting around you need to do; libdap is required for all of our software written in C++ (which includes the BES and the handlers).

If you are updating from an older version of Hyrax (older than Hyrax 1.5.0) you will need to update your olfs.xml file! See $CATALINA_HOME/webapps/opendap/initialContent/olfs.xml for the default olfs.xml for Hyrax 1.6.1. For more detailed information see the Hyrax Configuration Documentation
