Is there a way
to render the Scilab plots onto a Java rendering target
such as JPanel
(or GLAutoDrawable in JOGL)? I can think of at least two abstract
necessarily Scilab based) to do this. My question is: “is either of these
abstract operations supported in Scilab?”.
1.Access the data structure that contains
the plots (not the rendering window of Scilab) and then forward it to the
rendering target (in a form renderable) in Java so that it can be displayed on
any chosen target. In this case, we can still use Java event handling
mechanisms to support user interactions with the plots.
2.Send, to the Scilab plotting functions,
a handle to the rendering target and then Scilab plots the data onto the
rendering target. In this case Scilab needs to maintain a data base of rendering
target handles. Further, Scilab needs to take care of the user interactions –
it needs to keep track of event and source target (that is the target that
generated the event) associations.
not know Scilab well enough to see whether Scilab can do either of these
operations, and how to make Scilab do these operations.
