Things that might very well zoom in the near future is the JDA-composer check it out.
I've been writing a Swing application with the purpose to make it quicker to prototype Java2D-code. I wanted an application that made a Graphics2D object available to a BeanShell script so that the script could draw on it. The app should then display the results. I also did not want to write an editor so the app should watch a script file for changes so that I could edit the script in jEdit.
Still no bloggings from my friend.
