This package contains the sources for the PhysBeans library. To create the library file (physbeans.jar) and the documentation in html format, you need the Java development kit of version 1.5 or higher (or a corresponding Java IDE like NetBeans) and the ant tool. Unpack everything (with a packaging program or with "unzip") and create the jar archive and the documentation simply with "ant".

The build file contains the following targets (called by "ant TARGET"):

target description
jar creates physbeans.jar
doku creates the documentation with javadoc
all makes jar and doku
clean deletes class files
purge deletes all created files

For information on how to create applets with PhysBeans, have a look at the PhysBeans homepage and download the documentation package or the example applets.
