Hello everyone !

I had to put the project on pause for a couple of week but now I'm back on
it. First, thank you for your help. Thanks to you, I succeeded to put the
FxUI as prior UI. Also the JavaFX App is started in ImageJ. I could even
generate a menu and all. I can call the "Open file" plugin and it uses the
JavaFX routines to show the file dialogs and all. It's great. However, not
much happens after that. My next questions goes about to the ImageDisplay
stack. I have troubles understanding the "call stack" after the image has
been open. What the difference between the DisplayService, ImageDisplay and
ImageDisplayViewer ? An image is open but who decide of what and how ? Do I
have to overwrite the ImageDisplayService or is it UI agnostic ?
