Description

Corinna would like to access remote datapackages via configuring the EML 2 Dataset actor's EML File and Data File parameters to refer to remote files. I agree this would be very useful, I find it confusing that the actor can do this when instantiated as a result of a Data tab metacat search, yet you can't configure it to do so manually.

"that's too bad. In the documentation is says: "The datapackage can be accessed from the local file system or through any EcoGrid server that provides access to its collection of data objects. The supported data transfer protocols include http, ftp, file, ecogrid and srb." Which led me to believe I could access the data via the url. I think, it would be very useful to add that functionality, i.e. I would like to request this feature to be added. Possibly even getting the data when there is a download link provided in the EML?
It does get the EML file from the URL, so that works fine. It's just the data that it seems to have problems with. So, maybe it is not that far off to support that feature?"
