For the impatient: ant with no arguments will build the application,
ant with the "makeApplet" target will build the applet.
Use a Java Integrated Development Environment.
Jalview 2 has been developed with two IDEs:
If you are new to eclipse, we recommend you install it with the Yoxos system.
- Borland JBuilder
Jalview version 2 was originally developed using JBuilder, up until
the release of version 2.3. There are two project files in the root
directory of the archive, one for the application and another for
the applet. Note: some dependencies will be missing from this
project definition - check the ant build file.
Polite notice: If you want to change Jalview
in a way that would benefit others in the community, please email us
your code or suggestions and we will do our best to incorporate your
ideas in future releases!
