More Information

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 available for download from the Protege Web site in the form of a ZIP file:


Simply unzip the file to a location of your choice on your system, preserving the path names in the ZIP file.


JSave documentation comes with the binary distribution of the application. After you have unzipped the file on your system, you will find an HTML document entitled "jsave.html" in the root directory. If you would rather read the documentation without downloading JSave first, you can view jsave.html from the Protege Subversion repository:

http://smi-protege.stanford.edu/svn/jsave/trunk/docs/jsave.html (click the "download" link in the top left corner of the page)
