I can give a demonstration of a "VO-enabled" version of xmdv-lite. This
is a visualization tool for multidimensional datasets that has views
such as parallel axes. The two most interesting things about it (apart
from its use for visualization!) are how it's possible to deliver it by
Java Web Start (even though it includes non-Java code), and how it can
load data from VOSpace using Noel Winstanley's new Astro Client Runtime.
