Waveform Suite can now retrieve data from IRIS

Seismic traces can be retrieved directly from the IRIS-DMC, thanks to the new WS-IRIS java library. (knowledge of Java not necessary)

The DMC is pleased to announce you can now directly access IRIS-DMC stored data from within your MATLAB environment, thanks to IRIS Java Web Service Library (IRIS-WS Library) which has just been released into beta*. No knowledge of java programming is required.

You retrieve waveforms into the Waveform Suite (r339 and later) directly from the DMC, with no-to-minimal changes to existing code; just create and use a datasource object of the type 'irisdmcws'.

 * 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 final release should be a drop in replacement, backward compatible with this beta version.
