I'm looking for some software that will allow me look at equipotential electric field lines for various structures in two dimensions. Any thoughts?

I remember I ran into a good looking utility when I was researching antenna design, but now I can't find it...

You just want to see equipotentials for electrostatic situations in two dimensions?

That's so easy! Perhaps you'd learn a lot more writing your own utility. It would be quick to write one in Java...

the component that makes this a little more complicated is that I want to be able to introduce Faraday Cages and line charges, etc... not just point charges.

That doesn't make it any more complicated -- all conductors are equipotentials, and line charges can be simulated as a finite set of point charges.

that doesn't increase the likelyhood of me being able to write an applet
