Application programming interface (API) via sockets

The API is a powerful interface that allows an external program to control any aspect of uDraw(Graph). It is dedicated to developers looking for a superb graph visualization for their systems. In previous releases, the API was only accessible via UNIX® pipes, so the application had to operate on the same computer as uDraw(Graph). With the new version, an application program can communicate with the API using the registered socket port 2542 (or any other port). The socket feature offers much more flexibility than before. Start your application program and control it remotely from any host by manipulating a comprehensible uDraw(Graph) graph visualization. Click on a node, choose your own menu in the uDraw(Graph) user interface and your application program can react anywhere in the network.
