    Default Help with zoom in java

    Hi, Website page cluttered with many blocks containing different webpages/stuff: weather/maps/random stuff
    I want to take this page and miniaturize everything but still keep it active so I can see whats going on. Then when I need to view something, I could click the block I want and it zooms in on it to full screen.
    I've been trying to figure out how to do this, but I'm lost.

    Basically I'm trying to make a dashboard. This dashboard would contain weather maps, html pages of site statuses.
    I want to take these pages and miniaturize them into little active blocks on one page.
    I hope I explained myself well enough.

    I have not seen this done in Java before, that doesn't mean that it hasn't, or that it cant be done! But i have seen this done many times in Flash, there is also a lot of support available, here is a website which gives a tutorial on magnification:

    Mimicking a Magnifying Glass in Flash
    This is one tutorial, there are many out there for this sort of thing.

    try looking at the dojo toolkit
    or use an applet and a graphics api
    if u just want maps use the google maps api it is pretty easy and with javascript
