  • GridView.jar (116kB) - Several people using the Blue version of the SDK (v4.0) have reported problems displaying virtual SPOTs in Solarium after updating to Java version 1.6.0_12 on Windows or Linux systems. To correct this problem please download the updated version of the GridView.jar file that now works with Java 1.6.0_12 on Windows and Linux. You need to replace the old version in SDK_HOME/lib/SPOTWorld/views with the new one and then you should be able to create virtual (or real) SPOTs.

  • demosensorboardfirmware-blue.jar (22.7kB) - A number of people have reported a problem with the eDemoboard firmware getting corrupted on one of their SPOTs: The SPOT will print the error message "improper major revision of sensorboard firmware: 1 != xxx" on startup. If doing an upgrade did not fix things and you are running version 4.0 of the SDK (aka Blue), then please download the demosensorboardfirmware-blue.jar file, move it to the SDK upgrade folder (SDK_HOME/upgrade) and rename it to demosensorboardfirmware.jar, replacing the old version. Then do "ant upgrade" or upgrade the SPOT to Blue using SPOT Manager.
