Here's part 5, covering the Nodes API and the Explorer & Property Sheet API via 3 small demos and a bit of explanation.

  • Explorer & Property Sheet API: Gives you the Swing components that are sensitive to models of the kind outlined above, which can be exchanged very simpy, thanks to the ExplorerManager that controls them.
