if you do not see the graph below then click here


The applet is setup here to read both the configuration data and the graph data from a server side processes, in this case a PHP scripts running on our web server.

and here is the HTML code,

<applet code="AreaGraphApplet.class" archive="AreaGraph.jar" width="460" height="440">
<!-- Start Up Parameters -->
<PARAM name="LOADINGMESSAGE" value="Area Graph Loading - Please Wait."> <!-- Message to be displayed on Startup -->
<PARAM name="STEXTCOLOR" value="0,0,100"> <!-- Message Text Color-->
<PARAM name="STARTUPCOLOR" value="255,255,255"> <!-- Applet Background color -->

<!-- Data files -->
<PARAM name="chartproperties" value="">
<PARAM name="chartdata" value="">


The areadata script is a simple PHP script designed to demonstrate how a server script can be used to return data to either the graphing applet or servlet. In practice this routine would be expanded to first gather data from any number of data sources. eg. databases, files other server processes.

The areaprops scrip again is just a simple PHP script to demonstrate the method. Again, in practice this method would be expanded to derive data from a number of data sources.

For a full explanation of and range of values for the above parameters please see the Documentation - Configuration Options».
