We announce the release of a new suite of tools and demonstrations
for CML (Chemical Markup language), being perhaps the most
mature and developed "science domain specific" application of
The materials include
1. A (1.8 Mbyte) download for the JUMBO3-J browser
written by Peter Murray-Rust,
which is a standalone molecular browser written in Java and
capable of reading not only CML files, but a wide
range of legacy molecular formats.
This browser includes JMVS 3D viewer (using Java3D) written by
Allistair Crossley and incorporated into JUMBO3 as an example of
how such software can be easily extended via collaboration.
This download includes source code for the core components
of CML for developers and (JavaDoc) documentation and code for
**CMLDOM** which has been adopted by the
OMG for its "small molecule" specifications
2. An on-line demo and (400K) download for a lightweight
version of JUMBO3 which implements a simpleCMLDOM
iscapable of viewing XML-CML files by converting them on the fly to SVG,
which is then displayed using Adobe's SVG viewer. This is an excellent
illustration of how XML data can be transformed into other XML
forms (SVG is also XML), in this case for display purposes.
3. An on-line demo and download for a CML aware version of the
Peter Ertl's Molecular Editor (JME).. The base JME
editor is extended using an interface (JMECML) to input and output
CML as well as the usual JME supported formats. It comes as an
application (which allows CML files to be read and written to local hard
disk) and an applet (which allows CML files to be copied to the
clipboard for pasting into other applications).
is also available for viewing as
XACE (eXtensible annotating chemical editor).
4. We have compiled an FAQ which addresses many of the
questions and issues often raised in connection with XML and CML.
This is an on going project, and we expect will be extensively added
to over the coming months. Comments warmly welcomed!
Its all up at
Peter Murray-Rust and Henry Rzepa.
