Subject Re: Filemanager how to only metadata
Date Tue, 28 Dec 2010 21:54:30 GMT
Hi -

Thanks for the helpful tips.

I was looking at InPlaceDataTransferer, and it does not seem to have a command line interface
(there's no main). Specifically, I looked at the class 

Is there a command-line wrapper already built I can use?

Thanks again!

the product on hand" meaning it is stored somewhere else, then just put that url where it
is stored as the --ref arg . . . otherwise, if the product isn't anywhere, just put a random
url as the arg to --ref (e.g. file:///some/file/i/dont/have) . . . it will at least let you
get the metadata in
