GumTree is an open source and multi-platform graphical user interface for performing neutron scattering and X-ray experiments. It handles the complete experiment life cycle from instrument calibration, data acquisition, and real time data analysis to results publication. The aim of the GumTree Project is to create a highly Integrated Scientific Experiment Environment (ISEE), allowing interconnectivity and data sharing between different distributed components such as motors, detectors, user proposal database and data analysis server. GumTree is being adapted to several instrument control server systems such as TANGO, EPICS and SICS, providing an easy-to-use front-end for users and simple-to-extend model for software developers. The design of GumTree is aimed to be reusable and configurable for any scientific instrument. GumTree will be adapted to six neutron beam instruments for the OPAL reactor at ANSTO.
The first beta release of 1.8.x is now available from Codehaus. This release contains the upgrade Eclipse 4 RCP workbench, as well as GitHub connector for downloading customised experiment / analysis scripts.
I have found a good looking Swing component for instrument control:
In this site, the authur explained the techniques on making those controls in Java, using the FXG converter (converting Adobe XML output into Java).
