Eclipse Scout: Interactive Charts with SVG

As interactive charts are becoming more and more important to visualize data in business applications Eclipse Scout got added Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) support in the context of the Juno release train.

For this, new a SVG field is introduced as an additional UI component. This field enhances Scout with the ability to display interactive diagrams and graphics that work both on the desktop and in a web application.

A simple Tutorial

To get you started we added a simple tutorial on our Scout wiki. This tutorial covers displaying static SVG content (as shown below) as well as a SVG document that is dynamically updated  depending on the mouse clicks the user makes.

To provide an impression of a full blown usage of this feature, we’ve added a screenshot of a fancy dashboard below.
