Dear Ranchers,

As in the topic, I would like to find out if anyone has any experience or ideas in implementing a mapping program like in biztalk.

Like Biztalk, the UI interface will be two JTrees, one on each side of the screen, separated by a JPanel (MapArea) which contains the lines connecting the nodes from the source tree to the destination tree. On this MapArea, there can be boxes to indicate some function is applied like in BizTalk. (I believe they are called Functoids in BizTalk).

If possible, I would like to avoid using Java2D graphics directly.
Does anyone know of any existing libraries that can fulfill this easily?
(only apache, bsd/mit, lgpl)

Thanks for any inputs.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
