JSAMP is a Java toolkit for use with the
Simple Applications Messaging Protocol.
It provides the following components:
- A SAMP hub implementation, suitable for standalone or embedded use
- A set of classes which can be used to implement SAMP capabilities in
- A hub test suite, which can test correctness of third-party hub
- Utilities which can be used by client and hub developers, or SAMP users,
to analyse or debug SAMP sessions
- Graphical components built on top of the basic functionality suitable
for use with the above
For a given purpose, some or all of these components may be used at one time.
The toolkit's design aims are, in rough order of priority:
- Correctness according to the SAMP standard
- Ease of use for client application authors
- Ease of deployment within third-party applications (few dependencies)
- Flexibility, including the possibility to use with non-Standard
- Good documentation
- Small size
The current version targets the SAMP
1.1 Proposed Recommendation document
(21 November 2008).
