Due to the growing interest of the Physics community in Java, the SUN Java development kit (JDK) has been installed in the ASIS and NICE software repositories since mid 1998.
A Perl wrapper to the JDK has been provided in order to ease
version switching. The
--version option or
JDKVERSION environment variable allow to point to different
JDK kits as the references to the system classes and shared
libraries are handled by the wrapper. The same wrapper is in
production both for Windows and Unix systems.
The JDK commands are available in
The default version is 1.1.6 (1.1.5 on HP-UX). The JDK 1.2 is
available for Solaris, Linux, and AIX.
A set of Java libraries and utilities have also been installed in ASIS. It is planned to mirror these libraries and utilities in the NICE repository for Windows systems.
These products are maintained by the persons having strong interest in them. The ASIS team provides these persons with support and tools to update the products in the ASIS repository.
The CERN Wired project has provided a broad set of Java utilities and components used in their framework. These include:
xtJames Clark's XSL transformations processor
/usr/local/share/java.Their documentation can be found under
