JSave can be used to generate Java class definition stubs for Protege classes. The top level classes extend DefaultSimpleInstance, so that instances of the generated Java classes are also Protege instances and can use Protege API calls. A developer can add his or her own methods to the Java class definition. Regenerating Java class stubs will update the stubs while preserving user-supplied code. An option of the package allows generation of Java bean access methods and listeners.


JSave is bundled with the "full" installation of Protege.


The documentation for JSave is in the form of an HTML document entitled "jsave.html" and can be found in the following location (once you have installed Protege on your system):

If you would like to read the documentation without installing Protege, you can view jsave.html from our Subversion repository here. Click the "download" link in the top left corner of the page.
