I can see navigating, visualization and querying. But what about
adding, editing and removing objects? Is GT the wrong tool for this aspect?
No, Glamour offer ways to easily build an UI. My advice is to not focus too much on the UI
aspect at the beginning of your project. The reason is that the UI is very fragile during
the inception of a project: UI changes quickly and are time-consuming to produce.
I am not clear on the class-model. Information or pointers to
documentation would be great.
What I meant is the following. If you have a data base table that has the following column
Then maybe you can define a class Person, with one instance variable to a parent, another
for a location. You can have a class City with a name and the country in which the city
This is what I meant by having a class model.
Once you have this, all the machinery is nearly free.
