This distribution provides an infrastructure for scalable scientific and technical computing in Java. It is particularly useful in the domain of High Energy Physics at CERN: It contains, among others, efficient and usable data structures and algorithms for Off-line and On-line Data Analysis, Linear Algebra, Multi-dimensional arrays, Statistics, Histogramming, Monte Carlo Simulation, Parallel & Concurrent Programming. It summons some of the best concepts, designs and implementations thought up over time by the community, ports or improves them and introduces new approaches where need arises. In overlapping areas, it is competitive or superior to toolkits such as STL, Root, HTL, CLHEP, TNT, GSL, C-RAND / WIN-RAND, (all C/C++) as well as IBM Array, JDK 1.2 Collections framework (all Java), in terms of performance, functionality and (re)usability.
The package provides the Java library (APIS) to numerical libraries originally written in Fortran (particularly BLAS and LAPACK).
The package contains a Fortran to Java converter, also used to create the libf2j-java package. It converts Fortran file to Java source and class files.
This project contains the core Java Advanced Imaging API reference implementation containing the packages javax.media.jai.* and com.sun.media.jai.*.
This project contains the source code for the core Java Advanced Imaging Image I/O Tools API core containing the packages jj2000.*, com.sun.media.imageio.*, com.sun.media.imageioimpl.*, com.sun.media.jai.imageioimpl and com.sun.media.jai.operator.
Full Java runtime environment - needed for executing Java GUI and Webstart programs, using Hotspot JIT. . This package provides the openjdk-8 binaries shipped with the NVIDIA CUDA Toolkit, this obsolete version is needed for nvidia-visual-profiler and nvidia-nsight.
