Hi there,

please point your browser to: <https://sourceforge.net/projects/bsf4oorexx/files/beta/20130106/> in order to download the latest version of BSF4ooRexx, which is currently categorized as "beta". It contains fixes for all reported bugs and a few new samples for cross-platform GUI programming.

Please remove first any installed version of BSF4ooRexx (using the BSF4ooRexx menu, path "installation -> uninstall").

After successful installation of BSF4ooRexx you can find further information via the installed BSF4ooRexx menu entitled "Information", which contains PDF-files introducing some of the features of BSF4ooRexx. The information folder also contains a brief introduction to Rexx and ooRexx suitable for programmers who either do not know Rexx or do not (yet) know ooRexx.

If there are any questions with respect to BSF4ooRexx and/or Java then please post them on one of the BSF4ooRexx mailing lists:

In the case you find a bug, then please report it at:

In the case that you look for the documentation of the Java classes used in the Rexx nutshell examples use first the JavaDocs (HTML-pages documenting each Java class) for Java 1.4 as this version of Java has quite legible notations: <http://docs.oracle.com/javase/1.4.2/docs/api/>.

In the case that you need newer JavaDocs, then you may want to use one of: <http://docs.oracle.com/javase/1.5.0/docs/api/>, <http://docs.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/api/> or <http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/>, which all use heavily the "<xyz>" notation for "generics", which may be quite distracting for novice readers. Hence the advice to start out with the easy to comprehend JavaDocs for Java 1.4! (Please note that the Java documentation sites have plenty of interesting tutorials that demonstrate how to take advantage of the functionality of different kinds of Java classes.)

Information, documentation for BSF4ooRexx and samples can be easily accessed via the BSF4ooRexx menu.

For the BSF4ooRexx team, a RexxLA project.
