mysql data import into jitter
I would like to get text data out of a mysql database and use this
text ( names ) to make a realtime movie just fading them in and out.
I don’t think this is too complicated but I have no idea how to
import this data into max/msp jitter.
If someone could point to the right object names, I would highly
Thanks in advance.

MXJ, and a MySQL JDBC layer, and a chunk of Java and Jitter coding. I
don’t do a great deal of Jitter so I can’t help with that off the top
of my head (jit.gl.text is probably what you need).
Sounds like a nice little assignment. Have fun.

for questions like these you might want to check http://
http://www.maxobjects.com/. look for the mysql object, there is already a
handy object you can query your database with.
I have a sample patch that connects to a mysql database (a specific
database..), but, the code might be useful:
then you could take the strings, dump them into a jitter string
matrix (jit.str.xxxxxx) and then to a jit.lcd for pixel text or
jit.gl.text2D or text3D for openGL text.
