Hello,
New here. Java programmer. I've got WaterfallDisplay running from an Eclipse project, but it seems to be wanting  .compamp files, though all the sample data I've found is in raw (.dat) format. I realize these classes are a year or more old, so perhaps they are obsolete? If not, what code/process produces .compamp files and can i get a sample to work with?

Thank you.

Allright, it appears the DX or Archiver  would spit out a .archive-compamp file.  Does this mean I have to build the C++ codebase to get a file I can use with the  (Java) opensonata.dataDisplays package? -Andrew

Yes, you have to use the

Yes, you have to use the SonATA software to take the raw data files, such as the Voyager data, and create the complex amplitude data that the Java data displays use.
As an alternative, there is the http://setiquest.org/wiki/index.php/Algorithms project. This is a set of software utilities that can read in the raw data and perform various actions on the data. This includes creating waterfall data. 
If you do try to use the Algorithms project utilities and have a question or problem, please as as a reply in this forum topic and I'll try to get you the appropriate help.
 
Thanks

Voyager data

Thanks. I'll think I'll use this as an excuse to build an openSUSE box. (I'm guessing it's dependent on native libraries that aren't available for Windows?) 

As for the Voyager data, I don't see it at http://setiquest.org/wiki/index.php/SetiQuest_Data_Links
Is it still available?
