I am interested to know if there are any packages out there which solve
the problem of doing interactive Mathematica graphics using J/Link.
Obviously you can display your graphics in a mathCanvas window, but any
mouse messages relate to pixel coordinates and not to the coordinate
system of the original Mathematica plot. Furthermore, the relationship
between the two coordinate systems will change if the window is resized
by the user or (sometimes) if the graphics are changed.
The sort of program I have in mind might (say) populate a graph with
data supplied using the mouse.
The reason that I ask is that I have devised what I believe is a pretty
effective solution to this problem (by temporarily modifying the plot
with calibration marks). If there is nothing adequate out there I will
do the work to polish it up for MathSource.
Are there any plans to supply reliable pixels to Mathematica coordinate
conversions in J/Link (or is there something in there already that I
