After more than a month of sustained work, and over 3 months since the last update, we are finally releasing a new version of the Rhizosphere library (v 0.5) which includes full support for Google Web Toolkit
It includes a whole set of features dedicated to GWT developers:
- asynchronous inclusion of Rhizosphere libraries, so you can have them injected in your application only when the user needs it, minimizing performance impact,
- use your own POJOs to define the datapoints to visualize,
- coupled with a powerful annotation-based visualization configuration mechanism,
- full support for GWT widgets and UiBinder templates to define the visualization UI elements,
- full support for Google Visualization APIs for GWT to let you use Rhizosphere as a standard Google Visualization even within GWT.
To help you get started with Rhizosphere GWT, we have prepared a lot of material:
- Comprehensive documentation on how to install, setup and use Rhizosphere within your GWT app,
- Javadocs for the entire Rhizosphere module,
- a working demo application at rhizospheregwt.appspot.com that includes annotated examples of all the features supported by the module.
For this release, we'd like to thank Dino Derek Hughes of Google UK that kickstarted the whole GWT branch developing the first proof of concept integration of the Rhizosphere library.
