WebSampConnector is a client toolkit that enables webpage-based astronomy service to interoperate and communicate with VO softwares (no more save and load or cut and paste into the VO world!).
The WebSampConnector is a faceless Java applet built upon the JSAMP implementation of the SAMP messaging protocol. It can act both as a sender and a recipient, respectively, to send notification patterns toward the VO softwares, and to receive notification patterns coming from VO softwares. The messages are delivered to and received from clients which subscribe the following application MTypes:
Loads a table in VOTable format.
Loads a 2-dimensional FITS image.
Loads a table in FITS format.
Loads a spectrum or SED built by the Simple Spectral Access protocol.
Directs attention to a given point on the celestial sphere.
Highlights a single row of an identified table by row index.
Selects a list of rows of an identified table by row index.
The WebSampConnector implements also some of the hub administrative messages to manage the connection of the Web page with the Samp hub. See the documentation for more information about the use of the WebSampConnector.
