jbead is written in the Java programming language. Minimally a Java 5 is required. Tests were performed with Java 5, 6, 7. Since the code is 100% pure Java, the program should be fairly portable. Developed was it under linux, tested on Windows XP, Windows 7 and Mac OS X.
jbead was ported from the original C++ code of DB-BEAD. The port had the aim to preserve and extend the functionality, preserve backwards compatibility, but to refactor the code mercilessly to get to a high quality java code base.
jbead was written by Damian Brunold.
