It is not really a port, but a different implementation. Porting to
Squeak showed to be very difficult, as the original implementation was
depending on the VW GUI framework. I haven't worked on it lately, but
it should be rather complete.

It depends what you mean by integration?

Of course you can include the generated picture into any seaside
application, similar you do with any other dynamically generated image
(html image form: view form). If you need interaction you can use an
image-map and pass the clicks back to the Mondrian model, that will
tell you then what node was clicked.

Or do you want to render Mondrian to DOM (XHTML or SVG) elements? In
this case you have to implement your own rendering-strategy, but that
should be fairly simple as well.
