It's in src/share/tools/IdealGraphVisualizer.  The README provides  
some more detail about how to build and use it.  The version on kenai  
that Christian mentioned is a somewhat improved version by the student  
that designed and built the tool, Thomas Wuerthinger.  I believe he  
has Java Web Start links that would let you launch and use the tool  
without having to build it.
