Multi-platform Variable Star Visualisation and Analysis
VStar is a multi-platform, easy-to-use variable star observation visualisation and analysis tool. Data can be read from a file or the AAVSO database, light curves and phase plots created, period analysis performed, and filters applied. Plugins can be developed, e.g. to make additional observation sources available.

BoPlanets shows planets relatively to an observing planet.
BoPlanets is a virtual planetarium showing the planets relatively to any observing planet. The planets can be viewed in ecliptical-, equatorial- or horizontal view. The times of rise, transit and set of a planet can be determined. Click on the link below to the web site of BoPlanets to see BoPlanets running as an applet.
A collection of Java ports of open source terrain and solar system generation packages. Code has been extensively refactored, extended and documented. GPL License with exception for required libraries.
GRad is a standalone solar radiation model, programmed in Java. It is capable of the calculation of potential (clear sky) and actual (real sky) irradiance and total irradiation for single and multiple geographical locations. Note that, while fully functional, this application is currently not developed any further.
retep is a collection of Java API's covering PDF, XML, J2EE , Swing and now NetBeans modules for displaying astronomical maps, controlling modern "Go-To" telescopes - all in java., and accessing online databases.
