I am working on a generator, so if I have a small e.g. java class diagram
then I could display all information in one shot, but if I have an object
with a lot of sub object and sub sub object, then my tree is very big
with a lot of nodes and sub nodes and so I have too many
informaton, which I can't display all together. 

But I think I have to solve it with a Master-detail form.
