This paper describes an interactive browser used for exploring the structure of Java objects and their classes. It is implemented in Java and uses JDK 1.1 core reflection classes to discover details of the objects passed to it. The initial motivation for development arose from the need to browse persistent Java stores; the browser may also be useful as a symbolic debugging and visualisation tool.
