[tdwg-tapir] How to find list of Tapir providers

Exactly!  The portal provides an index of the data (what, where, when,  
who style information) but for retrieving the original records you  
would need to talk to the providers directly.

Attached is a simple Java class which logs all the registered  
endpoints in the GBIF registry.  I guess you would want only the TAPIR  
That class will require the UDDI4J library and commons logging (plus  
Log4J I presume you would use?)

May I please ask - what are you intending to do?  You can probably  
guess that code exists for scheduling the harvesting of TAPIR endpoint  
data for example - this may be useful to you...
