How to use it

for a production environment

First, you need to include the JsVotable library :

 <script src="JsVotable.min.js"></script>

Then, you can use it on your script :

var votable = new JsVotable.Votable(xhr.responseXML);

One the VOTable is loaded in the library, simply use the available getters. For instance, if you want to load the data from a tabledata, use the following code :

// gets the first resource
var resource  = votable.getResources()[0];

// gets the table from the resource
var table = resource.getResourcesOrTables()[0];

// gets the fields
var fields = table.getFields();

// gets the data : it could be tabledata, fits, binary or binary2
var data = table.getData();
if (data!=null && data.getDataImplementationName() == JsVotable.TAG.TABLEDATA) {
    var tabledata = data.getData();
    var trs = tabledata.getTrs();    
}
