Re: VisAD and SQL databases

I am using VisAD together with SQL queries to a database. It's really
pretty straightforward; the queries are generated in response to user
actions in the GUI, the returned data set is then used to populate a VisAD
object (like an Irregular2D set), and the VisAD infrastructure
automatically updates the image. It all works quite cleanly within the
VisAD architecture.

Hi everyone,

Just came across the page about VisAD:

And wondered if anyone has done any work on it so that VisAD can grab
data directly from a SQL database.

Had the thought that it might provide for adding interesting real-time
capabilities to VisAD, as well as making it easier to have multi-user
data input be analysed.

Not sure, but thought it worth mentioning.


Regards and best wishes,
