Today I will add a few blog posts regarding updates in the Graph Type Rendering and UI Saga. This first one covers enhancements with user interaction. Earlier we used a scroll-wheel to translate the Shape in the Scene on its Z-axis. Now we can use a build-in 1-pointer drag-zoom, actually scaling the Shape.
Additionally, GLMediaPlayer has been enhanced to deliver a test-screen (texture image) until the stream delivers the first video packets. This allows using it at any state and removes earlier complications to code its status, i.e. whether the stream is available or not. This is used within GraphUI’s MediaButton, see video below.

After shamelessly almost agitating to check whether our work on the JogAmp project can be sustainable, trying to arouse interest and unprofessionally dropping a call on the project’s website itself, I also enabled the github sponsorship program. Direct-BT and other projects can be funded as well. Who knows, maybe this route to more visibility helps and if not, hopefully it also won’t hurt much either 🙂

As already demonstrated in the previous Graph UI blog, the FFmpeg binding has been properly update, now supporting version 4, 5 and the development trunk 6. Version 4 is currently used in Debian 11 and version 5 in Debian 12. Each implemented version uses the current non-deprecated FFmpeg code-path. Continue reading “JogAmp’s JOGL FFmpeg Binding Update”
The vision and reimagination is to unite forces and bring back Java UI on bare-metal embedded devices, mobile and desktop. In the lasts months and years, I have sadly seen companies revoking their commitment and trust in Java in regards to Human Machine Interface (HMI) or User Interface (UI) applications. Continue reading “Reimagine Java on Desktop & Bare-Metal Devices”
Another update in the Graph Type Rendering Saga. I will use this entry to continuously add progress in the comment section. I will wrap up the remaining issues here and a layout fix for spacing. Continue reading “More Graph Type Rendering Updates …”
Update four in the Graph Type Rendering Saga. Here just a quick update on fixing serif font glyphs like g and æ and inner shape or holes within OutlineShape in general. Continue reading “Graph Type Rendering Update 4”
Just another little update, the 3rd, see first update and the second one for progress.
Basically one bug within the TypecastRenderer has been fixed, transforming the Glyph into our OutlineShape. Furthermore it may produce Java code to be pasted in a test class to test remaining issues. Continue reading “Graph Type Rendering Update 3”
After releasing JogAmp 2.4.0 (see feature/buglist), it was time to tackle an outstanding issue once again: Type Rendering. Motivation was born again by finding the most interesting feature to use Java with JOGL on Desktop, Mobile and Embedded Devices. At least for my taste, I identified this to be Graph UI, an immersive UI within the 3D scene including text and UI objects and user interaction. Continue reading “Graph Type Rendering Update 1”
What is Direct-BT?
I happily joined Xerxes’s call to enhance the
Bluetooth experience on embedded GNU/Linux for Zafena.
This ended up in a new Bluetooth LE (almost done) and BREDR (in progress)
C++-11 implementation named Direct-BT.
It exposes a modern Java binding to the refactored original TinyB. Continue reading “What is Direct-BT? Where is JogAmp 2.4.0?”
