Development of animation development environments is shaping up well. Some features included in the planning of this project are:
Support for runtime equation parameters.
Interfaces allowing for easy expansion of components that will be available for forms.
Two types of components that do not fall into the information gathering category. Dynamic components and Live components. Dynamic components equation sources can include items from context running the form displayer. Live components except developer's threads implementing provided interfaces to manipulate sources in the component equation.
Ability to save form configuration to persistant storage using markup language. This will also provide for easy transmission of the form to multiple work stations(The live components thread modules will most likely be transmitted in byte form to a classloader on the receiver's computer).
Form Displayer almost complete.
Form Developer almost complete.
Currently no live component thread modules created.
