Installing JAS3, Java and the LCSim Plugin

What is JAS3?

Java Analysis Studio or JAS is a studio (GUI) application built upon the Java programming language. It has an integrated compiler and class loader and can load and compile user Java programs on-the-fly. JAS benefits from key features of Java, itself, such as dynamic class loading and unloading, extensive built-in utility libraries and the ease which cross-platform GUIs can be developed using the SWING toolkit. It implements the Abstract Intefaces for Data Analysis for plotting and has a built-in WIRED4 event display. JAS has a plugin system for extending the functionality of the application by adding support for different event displays, IO formats, etc.


The current version of JAS is JAS3.
