Today when I sat down to edit that video, I was dismayed to learn that I'd fumbled the audio and captured video only. But no use crying over spilled milk. I decided to forge ahead, highlighting the points I found most interesting and supplying my own narration.
In this seven-minute clip, you'll see how:
Lighthammer's toolkit connects Java widgets to data sources
The Java widgets can produce HTML and XML views of data, by exposing URLs
Composite applications made of Java and HTML widgets are wired together using a Dreamweaver plug-in that generates LiveConnect glue
Drawings of dials and gauges, exported in SVG format, can be animated by live data and used in dashboard displays
It took longer to put this video together than I'd have liked, but it does capture the key points I wanted to illustrate. I'm still sorting out the tools and methods I'll need to be able to edit these things in a more time-effective way. And next time, I'll make sure the presenter's voice is captured too!
