Subject Re: "high-level" way to create SVG Elements of specific type?

Yes, actually I am doing it that way and just ommited it from my example.
I didn't know that batik actually creates an SVGRectElement out of it.
So it is enough to just cast the created element to the relevant
interface? e.g.:

final SVGRectElement rect= (SVGRectElement) document.createElementNS(ns,

But that gives me an SVGRectElement that has the getters for the specific
attributes. Is there a way to get a class that provides the setters as in
my second (hypothetical) example?:

final SVGRect rectElement= ..... //create the element

I will have a look at the wiki again. Quite possible that I have
overlooked some important info there.

Thanks and regards
