Finally, after several months of hard work, jLibrary beta2 is available.
jLibrary has been developed by a <a
href="http://jlibrary.javahispano.net/en/Index/about.html">Spanish group
of people </a> after several months working. Any JDK of the 1.4.X series
is recommended. jLibrary hasn't been tested with anyother JDK.

The main news in jLibrary beta2 are collected in the <a
href="http://jlibrary.javahispano.net/en/Index/history.html">history
track</a> (unfortunately, this file is only in Spanish), but he most
important are:

* A new web client that allow standard HTML access from a browser to the
jLibrary repositories
* Repositories exportation to static HTML webs
* A better user interface with more icons, wizards, forms, etc.
* New views to handle information
* A very big help system with online help, presentations, cheatsheets,
etc.
* Improvements in the indexaction, searching and extraction processes
* A lot of improvements in client performance and also a lot of bug fixes
* Great improvments on the server side, regarding to performance,
scalability and stability . This includes a brand new connection pooling
mechanism, a second level cache, etc.
* New features like file locking, version management, etc.
* Improvements in the logging system

To download jLibrary, you only have to go to <A
href="http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=95837">SourceForge.net
downloads page</A> or to the <a
href="http://javahispano.net/frs/?group_id=13">javahispano.net downloads
page (has some problems that may corrupt files) </a>. Currently, there are
two different versions: one for Windows platform, tested against Windows
XP and Windows2K, and another one for Linux platforms with GTK installed.
The recommended platform is Windows. This recommendation it's only because
Windows has been the platform used for developing and testing, and so I
suppose that jLibrary would be more stable in this platform.

jLibrary user inerface is internationalized both in English and Spanish.
However, the indexation engine supports more than eleven different
languages. If you want to translate jLibrary user interface to another
language (only one resources file has to bee changed) <a
href="mailto:mpermar@gmail.com">contact with us </a> - well, you can also
contact if you want to help with the project :-)

After you have downloaded jLibrary, <a
href=" http://jlibrary.javahispano.net/en/Documentation/install.htm l">remember
to follow the installation instructions</a>. jLibrary will run without any
settings, but be careful, reading this information is very important to do
tasks as changing the jLibrary backend database.

By default, jLibrary is configured to use <strong>HypersonicSQL</strong>
as database backend. Anyways, <strong>this is not the recommended database
engine</strong>. HypersonicSQL it's included only to make jLibrary
execution easier and faster, and also to provide a local storage system
without the need of an external database. But, we have detected several
errors with HypersonicSQL, with regarding with pooling support, complex
operations, etc. This bugs are caused because of the database simpleness.
Actually, the <strong>recommended</strong> database engine is
<strong>MySQL</strong>. You can also use PostgreSQL (but it hasn't been
deeply tested).

Don't forget to this release <a
href=" http://jlibrary.javahispano.net/en/Documentation/whatsnew.ht ml">new
and noteworthy</a> changes. Also don't forget to <a
href="http://jlibrary.javahispano.net/en/Documentation/index.html">read
the documentation</a>, and to <a
href="http://jlibrary.javahispano.net/en/Tutorials/index.html">read the
tutorials</a> (this is highly important). Also, don't forget that there is
an online help, a help presentation, an internal help with search support,
and a bunch of cheatsheets. All of this will help you to use this tool.

Also remember that there is two jlibrary repository samples that you can
import into jLibrary to quickly start. <a
href="http://jlibrary.javahispano.net/samples">They are here</a>.

And finally, don't forget that this is a <strong>beta</strong> version.
jLibrary, as you will see, is a very big project, and so it will have lot
of little bugs. If for any reason you find some of this bug <a
href="mailto:mpermar@gmail.com">make us know about it </a>. By the way,
have I said that <strong>jLibrary is looking for collaborations</strong>?
Yes, any help would be good. Even for the most complex development things
as for the most simple things, like translation.

I really hope that you like jLibrary.
