Hi, new guy here.
I am trying to develop a structural analysis program (finite element method).
Basically the program would allow the user to draw a structure on a panel and then load it with point loads.
Question is do I need to use beans and bean introspection to get it so that the graphical representation of the structural elements can be modified as the structure is solved.
Ideally what I would like to do is allow the user to dynamically add instances of the element and joint classes to the structure object and then as the structure is loaded with load objects the user can see the movement of the element and joint objects as an update.
I am having trouble understanding this part of Java. I have tried studying the java website on beans and model view controller pattern but this seems to be more oriented to business apps.
Can anyone explain this to me or point me in the right direction. Thanks
