An Oscilloscope in the browser?

An Oscilloscope in the browser?

Last week Wim Jongman bloged about the Nebula Oscilloscope widget. It’s just an awesome widget for monitoring activity. See Wim’s post to form an opinion yourself.

So, for me as a RAP developer, the first question I always ask myself when seeing such a cool thing is: “Will it run on RAP?”. I followed the steps Wim described to get the Oscilloscope running, changed the target to RAP, commented out one line of code and started the application. You can see the result in the screencast below.

I think the result is just awesome. It runs very smooth with almost no lags. For all of you who don’t know it yet, this is possible because we implemented the GC and published it with RAP 1.3. The updates from the server are realized via the UICallback mechanism of RAP. I think this video shows that, in the meantime, RAP became a very sophisticated technology. We are all looking forward to seeing a lot more cool things like this working with RAP.
