Requirements for JavaView

JavaView runs on any computer and operating system with a valid Java_1.1 or later installation.

The installation on Windows computers usually does all necessary Java installations. On Apple and Linux systems some additional setup might be necessary per user, for example, a correct CLASSPATH.

In Case of Problems

The initial download of the JavaView installer resp. archive may need some time on slow connections. The JavaView archives are transferred once. Further JavaView applets do not require a new download of the archive but use the version of the browser's cache.

General Rules

If there is no applet or geometry visible after some time, try the following steps:

  1. Browser Version: Check if Java is installed and available in your browser. If you do not know your browser's version number, go to the following page which will list your browser properties.
  2. Security Issues: If you do not see the message "JavaView initializing ..." or a model does not load or show up in JavView, there might be a security issue. Try open the Java Console of your browser or your operating system and search for related warning messages. Security issues are a bit delicate for beginners to understand and you might want to ask an expert who knows about your operating system and the security policy. This has nothing to do with JavaView.
