I have thought about this a lot and have been working on about the third version for CML support. Say we are working at a node-centered level - e.g. the DOM/JUMBO or whatever knows about <MOL>...</MOL> but there is no point in either a tree- or eventstream display or editing of the children. We click on <MOL> and might expect the following types of functionality: - display() // to anywhere , probably a new JFrame - getDisplayComponent(boolean editable) // returns a JComponent which // can be embedded in a TabbedPane, Table, etc. - highlight(String foreignAddress); highlights a subcomponent of the object (e.g. an atom in a molecule) - drawToGraphics(Graphics g, Scaler s); // draw onto an exiting graphics so that many objects can be rendered. Scaler is a GKS-like scaling (I expect Java2D will supersede that) This could be very general - it would allow a molecule and a maths eqn to be draw to the same surface, either to be edited, parts of them to be highlighted, etc. I am reasonably confident this will work - if others are interested in following this discussion I'd be delighted.
