Small MultiView Editor Experiment (Part 1)

Been looking at multiview editors, since a few developers (Ajith Srikukan and Thusani Nagarathnam) have asked about this lately. I ended up with a small experimental starting point. When a new item is added in the text view of the editor below...

...a new node is added to the BeanTreeView in the visual view of the editor, alphabetically:

Nice to have the synchronization working, at least from one side. Next I will try from the other side too. After that, use the XML editor. Then some more advanced multiview editors, e.g., with visual library support, which Vadiraj Deshpande has also illustrated in his blog. I'm hoping that my example incorporating the visual library will be simpler than his.
