"Passive Mode": Early Access

As of now, Phidget Quad Servo controller is happily shuffling a servo on my desk, controlled by the code that you can get from Subversion trunk. This is what you have to add to the configuration in order to enable it:

    <bean id="damper_factory" class="net.sf.dz3.device.actuator.servomaster.DamperFactory">
<constructor-arg index="0" value="net.sf.servomaster.device.impl.usb.phidget.QuadServoController"/>
<constructor-arg index="1" value="00515"/>

<bean id="damper-quad_servo0"
<constructor-arg index="0" value="USB Bus Powered Servo"/>
<constructor-arg index="1" value="0"/>

Other servo controllers will be supported as well. Please answer the poll questions (on your right) to let me know which drivers I have to take care of first.

As of right now, DZ3 is completely capable of supporting the passive mode. I'm not going to release the code just yet, until all prerequisites for Barebones are satisfied.
