Jade is a Java-based interface between the object-oriented ACEDB database and the Java programming language. The features of Jade include:
Jade was developed as a graphical front end for the C. elegans genome database. However it has been used to provide interfaces to databases for other organisms, as well as non-biological fields entirely, such as astronomy.
Several demos are available. The speed of the demos will depend on how close you are (network topologically speaking). Some of the demos may be down from time to time.
Jade runs on any platform that supports Java. However to run an ACEDB server you will need a Unix system or one of its variants (such as Linux).
You will find the current Jade version and any previously released versions can be found at http://stein.cshl.org/jade/distrib/. This is freely distributable software. You download and use it for any purpose whatsoever, so long as the attribution remains intact. Please see the copyright and limited liability statements in the README file for details.
Documentation of the database interface and (some of) the graphical library is available at http://stein.cshl.org/jade/distrib/docs/jade.db.html
