We are pleased to announce that the first beta release (version 1.0)
of the JavaMath API, is now available at http://javamath.sourceforge.net
JavaMath is free (GPL) software to enable mathematical programs in Java
to use the computational capabilities of existing compute engines.
While JavaMath can be used for stand-alone applications, the API
is oriented toward the easy construction of Internet based
client-server systems and Web pages. So far, JavaMath implements
compute sessions with Maple and GAP.
The following funding bodies for their support:
- The European ESPRIT OpenMath Project; and
- The Canadian Network of Centres of Excellence MITACS Project.
The following people for using early versions, giving feedback or
helping to develop the ideas behind JavaMath:
- Alan Cooper
- Steve Linton
- Manfred Riem
