Let's work in full screen mode

One of the greats features offered by Java is its capability to switch in full screen mode. The following article is a sun's tutorial on this subject :

To illustrate how it is benefit to use this mode, I want to opposite it to web based applications that impose the display of unusefull navigator toolbars (taking 25% of the screen workspace).

I will implement full screen mode in Violet UML Editor.
