Hi,
I am looking for a good Java API to ease the development of drawing tools, such as entity relationship diagrams (ERD), database diagram (DBD) and window flow diagrams. Now I'm not looking for these tools, but the API to create such tools. There must be APIs out there built on top of 2D or 3D that would make this task easier. It would be nice if it's open source (free), but it really doesn't matter. Ease of use is most important. Of course, I have searched Google already and have found some prospects, but was just wondering if anyone here has used or has heard about such an API.
many thanks for your help,
Barry

Try JHotDraw (http://www.jhotdraw.org), I have heard good things about it. I think they have some sample apps that are similar to what you are looking for.
