Hi @imagejan and @rhjpires,
Yes, currently working on Intelligent Acquisition with KNIME driving µManager. I call the project µmKNIME (forked from MMRestServer).
However, what I am doing can be driven by anything that can use URLS. A simple text file loaded by your favorite browser should allow execution of µManager commands.
But, I am in the process moving the code from µManager 1.4 to 2.0. Not easy since they made a ton of internal changes that do not work well with REST Server also I have limited time to work on this.
Ricardo, I think what you want done can be done in a BSH script running inside µManager, in which you have access to ImageJ1 functions/plugins. You would have to import jfreechart for plotting. A more advanced approach would be creating a µManager plugin, which my pgFocus plugin is an example. It plots real time data inside µManager. The most advanced approach would be using µmKNIME (which isn't finished).

PS. I am on this forum with my gmail email and not my umass email, with the same username as github (@kbellve). I don't come here frequently, so thanks for the invite.
