Re: Heavyweight vs. lightweight

Hello Francesco:

I had exactily the same problem.  But is really not a VisAD problem, when
you create a display you have to give it a name that most be uniq (because
you can rebuild the object using its name).  I gess that when you call the
JInternalFrame class generator you run twice over the same code, I mean you
call two different displays whit the same name.  I solve the problem giving
the new display name as an argument to the JInternalFrame class.

I don't know if this message can help you but if you need a piece of code
explaning this I can send it to you.

I am not really an expert on Visad but I'm planning to become one so If this
does not help you, send another message to the general List.

Regards,
Ricardo
