i have to define custom view to display google maps. Can you tell me which classes/interfaces i need to implement? (mango 1.12.4)
Please look at the customViewExample.jsp file in the web root.
While the customViewExample.jsp is a good starting point, the essential thing to be able to experiment IMHO is to have a means of getting at the data point values to do something meaningful with them (other than plotting them or return their values as in the examples).
This brings me to a general issue: I can see that it is a huge effort to document these and other things, but interested contributors (hinting at MA 2.0) often have no clue of the internals so figuring things out in a reasonable time is not possible...
Same problem here... I want to contribute and build things using MA 2.0 but without any documentation its very hard.
Maybe a good option for the future will be develop a SDK and build some tutorials.
MA has become a pretty big system with much to document. Can you be specific about what your need more information on?
The first thing that comes to mind is how to add custom view components and/or more useful for us: generate custom reports.
Are interfaces to external report engines planned? I am thinking of something similar to the DGLux interface for reports instead of graphical views.
MA already has a reports module, with which you can generate certain types of reports. I assume that you know this and need something else, in which case you are probably out of luck at the moment. However, we are considering developing an API module which may be of use for the purposes you mention. The details aren't worked out yet (REST vs RPC in particular), but maybe you can let us know whether this is something that would be useful for you.
Sorry for getting back this late.

As you said, I know these. I use them for daily emailed monitoring reports to check operation. Apart from that, we would like to use our existing reporting facilities (statistical stuff implemented in GNU R) on the MA data.

Great, this is exactly what I was looking for. This API would help us greatly in building a custom report infrastructure. Thus, a +1 from my side.
