I think you will need to do this in a web page running java.  So you need a way to link your R stuff to java, possibly back and forth depending upon exactly what you end up doing.  You've found some pages already.  But look also at shiny and d3.


And there are other flavors.  It mostly depends upon whether you want to write the java or let a package do it for you.

Others may have better ideas.  Bryan
