The files in the src/imports/ directory which are copied to the imports/ directory when a distribution is created are all Copyright 2012 (c) by the Concord Consortium and distributed under various open source licenses. These resources represent some of the authored content for our earlier work on the Java versions of Molecular Workbench and Energy2D and are distributed here to aid in the conversion of these resources to HTML5 for the Lab project.

Java files in src/jnlp

The files in the src/jnlp directory are compiled Java Jar archives and are copied to server/public/jnlp/ when a runnable distribution is created during the build process.

The only files in this directory are the native Java JNI libraries for accessin g the Vernier GoIO probeware.

These files consist of code developed at Concord Consortium and licensed under the Lab license and the Vernier GoIO SDK distributed by Vernier as Public Domain software (git mirror).
