Hi Mike, Nico and all,
Some parts of the compatibility module are already implemented.
Actually, there are two different approaches:
1. A kind of wrapper that provides interfaces and classes with the same
package structure as libSBML but everything is linked to JSBML objects.
2. A kind of translator that reads and writes SBML files with libSBML
and copies all of the properties and elements into corresponding JSBML
For point 1, I would suggest to define mostly interfaces that can have
the identical names and package structure as libSBML elements but that
can at the same time have derived types which also extend JSBML data types.
Mike, please have a look into the JSBML repository. There is, besides
trunk, branches, and tags, also a modules directory, in which you can
find compatibility approach 1 and 2.
