I am tasked with building an application using struts where the end user would input data and as that data is being inputted, a tree structure would be built and displayed on the data entry page. I have thought about scrubbing the entire struts part and doing a swing application but I am not sure if this would be permissible. Has anyone who would like to share your experiences done this before? I was thinking generally along these lines; the data entered could be sent back on submit to the database. Perhaps in the database, along with storing the information, I could somehow store the structure of the tree and return it to be displayed? Any thoughts?

I realized I needed to refine things a bit. The data would actually be displayed more like a file system (yes, I know this is a tree as well). Didn't know if that added to the problem or not.
There are also tree controls in other frameworks such as JSF and struts-menu.
