public class DefaultSDIApplication
extends AbstractApplication

DefaultSDIApplication handles the lifecycle of a Views using a single document interface (SDI).

An application consists of independent JFrames for each view. Each JFrame contains a menu bar, toolbars and palette bars for the views.

The life cycle of the application is tied to the JFrames. Closing the last JFrame quits the application. DefaultSDIApplication handles the life cycle of a single document window being presented in a JFrame. The JFrame provides all the functionality needed to work with the document, such as a menu bar, tool bars and palette windows.

The life cycle of the application is tied to the JFrame. Closing the JFrame quits the application.
