Abstract: StarView is the user interface to the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Data Archive. It supports queries to the HST catalog, submission of retrieval requests, data preview, and other archive-related functions. This presentation looks at the StarView II effort to make a flexible, adaptive framework for browsing astronomical catalogs. We discuss user interaction with the customizable form, describe the use of Java Foundation Classes in implementing the Model View Controller design pattern, and present design features that allo w simple, robust communication with third-party components added at run-time.
