Xamin Batch Interface issues

A new version of the jar file used for the Xamin command line interface has been released. The older version contains a URL that is no longer valid and queries using this jar file will fail.

There are two ways to fix this:

  • Users can download a new version of Xamin’s users.jar file
  • Users can use the existing users.jar but need to specify the environment variable XAMIN_CLI_URL to point to https://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/xamin/cli

If you have questions please let us know. We apologize for the inconvenience.

  1. Hi,
    The batch interface is not working for me, using names (known recent issue) but also using positions.
    I have the latest users.jar.
    Example query:
    java -jar users.jar table=numaster position=’1.1,9.1′
    java -jar users.jar table=numaster position=”NGC 1313″
    No response, no output.
    Tried with java on Ubuntu 16.04 (openjdk version “1.8.0_121”) and OSX 10.12 (java version “1.6.0_65”)

    Thanks in advance
