public class BoidBox
extends javax.swing.JFrame

A simple example application using the Uncle Unc framework to expose the methods and properties of a java application.

The application being used here is a bird-flock simulation that I wrote a few years ago. Bird flocking algorithms are a cute technique for creating organic-looking movement in particles, and was commonly used in the days of java applets to make pretty pictures on a web page. Something about our hunter-getherer origins makes them appealing to watch.

The bird-flock was not designed with Uncle Unc in mind, and the object browser has been fitted onto it retroactively. This choice was deliberate, as the boid box is intended to demonstrate how easy it is to apply the Objectbrowser to any existing piece of java code.
