***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.sfu.ca/~insna/ ***** The JUNG (Java Universal Network/Graph) project is proud to announce the release of JUNG 1.2--the free, programmable, extensible social network toolkit. We have a number of sample applets that run in your browser and show off various features of the JUNG system at http://jung.sourceforge.net/examples.html (Check out, in particular, the "Bipartite Graph Applet"--it's a visualization of Davis/Gardner/Gardner's Southern Women dataset.) JUNG now features: * File I/O support ascii matrices GraphML and some Pajek files * More layout algorithms: Fruchterman-Rheingold Kamada-Kawai an Eades-like spring embedder self-organizing maps directed acyclic graphs * Built-in support for hypergraphs * A graph event infrastructure can notify algorithms when the graph changes * Random graph generation Barabasi-Albert Lattice1D- and Lattice2DGenerator ErdosRenyi SimpleRandom We've also included a preview of an upcoming visualization toolkit that answers a lot of past requests for features. Check it out in the samples/ directory of the download. http://jung.sourceforge.net JUNG is a free, open-source programming framework for implementing graph and social network solutions in Java. It is intended for programmers who are interested in being able to programatically manipulate graphs, by iterating commands on them, dynamically modifying them, and visualizing the results. While the JUNG framework provides many algorithms and tools for graphs, it allows many other possible uses, and allows you to add your own algorithms. JUNG has been successfully used... ... to create visual applets ... to read data from JDBC (database) connections ... to handle social network datasets, including very large (100,000 plus nodes) ones ... to write out data that can be read by PAJEK and UCINET ... for stastical analyses, network measures, and visualizations We invite you to try out JUNG, and to let us know whether you find it helpful. We are also looking to expand our body of code and alogrithms, and would be delighted to have your contributions. http://jung.sourceforge.net Danyel Fisher on behalf of the JUNG Development Team _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.sfu.ca/~insna/).
