Hello webservice users,

The DMC is pleased to announce the beta release of the IRIS Java Web Service Library (IRIS-WS Library).  This Java API allows direct access to data and information at the DMC from within your programs.   This library constructs the service calls based on criteria you define, and accesses the web services behind the scenes.  Information is retrieved as java objects that are available for immediate manipulation, bypassing the traditional “save to disk, reload into my program, and then parse the data format*” series of steps.

The Library provides access to and classes for fundamental data types:

* Station metadata (via the ws-station service)
* Waveform/time series data (via the ws-bulkdataselect service )
* Event information (via the ws-event service)
* Trace data, which contains both time-series data with associated station metadata.

To learn more about the IRIS-WS Library, see examples, and download the current version, please visit

Feedback is welcome and appreciated.

Due to the anticipated update of the underlying services this beta release will cease to work properly in the future and users will be required to download and use the final release of the library.  We anticipate that the programming interfaces in the final library will be backward compatible with this beta version, in other words the final release should be a drop in replacement.

Another email will follow, describing how to access data directly from within MATLAB, using the IRIS-WS Library.
