The current version 1.0.3 of the software ZET can be downloaded here, including signature files. ZET is distributed as compiled Java(TM) package and needs at least Java 6.0. The source code of ZET is available from sourceforge. The latest version of the source code can be directly accessed via the SVN-Repository.

The program file is signed using the public key of zet.

Thel atest version of zet is due to 06. 01. 2010. The download contains the program including some example files.

Installation und execution of ZET

ZET is released as a Java package in a jar file. It suffices to extract the rar file into an arbitrary directory, e.g. on Windows machines into C:\Applications. As ZET is capable of running out of the home directory it is not necessary to have administrator privilegues. The release package contains all needed libraries. The system depending libraries used for 3d visualization using OpenGL are contained in different versions for MacOS, Linux and Windows. ZET is, with exception of the OpenGL system libraries, completely written in Java and needs at least Java Version 6. The current version of Java can be downloaded at the Java download page.

The program is stored in the jar file zet.jar, which cannot be startet directly as the path to the system depending libraries has to be set. These files are stored in directories of the form /lib/jogl-system-architecture. The following table shows the correct parameter for supported systems:

Linux 32 bitjava -Djava.library.path="lib/jogl/linux-i586/" -jar zet.jar
Linux 64 bitjava -Djava.library.path="lib/jogl/linux-amd64/" -jar zet.jar
MacOS Power PCjava -Djava.library.path="lib/jogl/macosx-ppc/" -jar zet.jar
MacOS Universal 32 bit
(Benötigt Java 6)
java -Djava.library.path="lib/jogl/macosx-univ/" -jar zet.jar
MacOS Universal 64 bit
((Works under Mac OS 10.6 only as before no Java 6 was provided)
java -Djava.library.path="lib/jogl/macosx-univ/" -d32 -jar zet.jar
Windows 32 bitjava -Djava.library.path="lib/jogl/windows-i586/" -jar zet.jar
Windows 64 bitjava -Djava.library.path="lib/jogl/windows-amd64/" -jar zet.jar

Simple start using scripts

On Windows systems, the batch files zet32.bat and zet64.bat call the version for 32 bit intel systems and amd64 systems, respectively. The executable files zet32.exe and zet64.exe call a version of the Java interpreter that hides the default output and is recommended to use if no debug information is needed. Both executables take the same command line parameter as the .jar file.

For Linux systems the shell scripts and start the application in 32-bit mode and 64-bit mode, respectiveley.
