"Jazz cools its heels at the University of Maryland? Sort of.
Jazz is a Zooming User Interface (ZUI), newly released as a 1.0
version by "The Jazz Band," the collaborative team born of the
University and an Open Source group. Six years in development
at the University's Human Computer Interaction Laboratory under the
supervision of director Ben Bederson, Jazz supports developers of
2D, object-oriented graphics programs in Java."
"Jazz has been released as Open Source and is freely available
for download from the Jazz home page. "The 'Jazz' platform is a
Java-based ZUI development toolkit," a "Jazz Band" release
explains. "Applications implemented in Jazz can easily zoom, pan,
and transform graphical and text objects organized into a
scene-graph of hierarchical cameras, nodes and objects."
"Jazz's integration with Java and Swing (a Java toolkit for
developing graphical user interfaces [GUIs]) allows all Jazz
applications to be platform-independent and run in any browser with
a Java 2 Run-time engine (JRE)."
