BioJava includes a sequence GUI toolkit which could certainly
be used to write an effective alignment viewer. If you're
interested in going down this route, take a look at the
org.biojava.bio.gui.sequence package: a combination of
AlignmentRenderer and SymbolSequenceRenderer should give
a basic alignment viewer.
If you're looking for an off-the-shelf application, I don't
know of any general biojava-based solutions. But you might
find JalView useful:
