IntroductionThe JSBML project's aim is to provide an SBML parser and programming library that maps all SBML elements to a flexible and extended type hierarchy. Where possible, JSBML strives to attain 100% API compatibility with the libSBML Java API, to facilitate a switch from one library to the other for those who desire it. Currently, JSBML supports all constructs for SBML up to the latest Level 3 Version 1 release candidate specification, including an API to add SBML extensions. There are no plans to re-implement some of the more complex functions of libSBML, since separate community efforts are expected to make them available to JSBML via web services. These more complex functions include model consistency checking, SBML validation, and the conversion between different SBML Levels and Versions.
current status :
JSBML is planning to release a first version for the end of this year. Most of the features planned for the 0.8 release are there and working. We have fews problems or issues in the handling of notes (XHTML), annotation (RDF) or math (MATHML) and we need to add more test and documentation.
Version : jsbml-0.8.x
Version : jsbml-1.0.x
DownloadThere are no stable releases published yet but you can download and compile directly the sources.
To do that you will need to have the java jdk installed and also an apache build utility called ant and a version control system, subversion.
# to get the source svn co https://jsbml.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/jsbml/trunk jsbml cd jsbml # to compile and create the library jar file ant jar # to run the tests ant test
AcknowledgementsJSBML is a community driven, open source project. Currently, the main developers come from the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) and the University of Tübingen.
