This example puts together everything you have learned about modal and modeless Java user interfaces. It implements the familiar dialog box mini-application in both modal and modeless flavors. The application is inspired by the classic MathLink example program RealTimeAlgebra. The original RealTimeAlgebra written for the NeXT provides an input window into which the user types an expression that depends on certain parameters (a, b, c, and so on), an output window that displays the result of the computation, and some sliders that are used to vary the values of the parameters. The output window updates as the sliders are moved, hence the name RealTimeAlgebra. Our implementation of RealTimeAlgebra will be very simplistic with only a single slider to modify the value of one parameter.
