1. Currently Equinox (http://www.wizards.dupont.com/Equinox/Equinox.html) makes two separate calls to a remote server: 1) get a FlatField and 2) get a String array of word stems associated with the (x,y) values of the FlatField. I do this because they are two different data types and to ensure the threaded server can support multiple clients connecting to it. I would like to return both the FlatField and String array in one call. Better yet, it would be ideal to make the word stems available as meta-data of the FlatField. I need to install the meta-data (word stems) on the remote server and determine their values from the Equinox client. How is this done? I have not seen any examples that demonstrate how textual meta-data (TextType) can be utilized. 2. Equinox uses a yellow tracking dot to move a green dot across the surface that represents the number of documents a particular word stem is associated with. I believe the tracking would be easier if the green dot was instead a green line. The green dot sometimes disappears behind surface peaks which makes it difficult to track. A green line parallel to the Z axis would prevent the user from losing track of the intersection of the surface. Can this be done? Any hints on how to get this working would be most appreciated.
