Hi Sean,

I have not tried it yet but I think that you can just import processing as a usual jar file. (I am also look at Improvise as well -  http://www.cs.ou.edu/~weaver/improvise/index.html ). 

One of the problem that I face when I run ACEGES tool is that I need an interactive way not just to see a time series data graphic but to be able to pause the simulations and 'explore interactively' the results of the global oil and gas market + individual countries + individual wells. 

What i am trying to say to understand the dynamics of 'certain' simulations an exploratory visualisation based on multiple coordinated views packages will be highly important to understand the dynamics of the model.  This might be useful also during the 'validation' stage of the development phase. 

At the moment I save the results in csv and then I use R to do what I need to do. But I thought that a visualisation plug in in MASON will be very helpful.

Vlasios, Processing would be interesting to output to, but it doesn't strike me as a replacement for JFreeChart.  And Processing is (to my knowledge) not a library facility -- it expects to be in charge rather than to be a subsidiary to an outer system.   It's really its own programming language.  I don't know if it does a good job interoperating with outer systems using it as a plug-in facility essentially.  Did you have something in mind in particular?

Hi Sean,

Have you given any thought introducing "Processing' (http://processing.org/ ) in MASON's gui packages (in replacement of  or in addition to JFreeChart)?
