The Java editor provides the following additional features not found in the nam editor.
the ability to change the state of a link, link down (fault) and link up (no fault)
an array indexing feature to create arrays of traffic object sources, to observe
this feature in operation try using the example general.nss
a graph drawing feature that allows the user to record the state of a variable of
interest during a simulation, for example, the size of transmission window

I hope to have this editor installed as a general application for students.
