How to Install EJS (Easy Java Simulation) in Ubuntu 10.10

July 13, 2011


An important component of software’s success is an inviting and intuitive interface. Graphics and animation often engage a user. However, such features can be the most time-consuming and difficult portions to add to programs. In this article, we introduce and review Easy Java Simulations software, often abbreviated EJS. We will discuss its striking benefits and also its limitations. Most of all, we will see how EJS can do the heavy-lifting of adding graphical user interfaces (GUIs) to your computer programs.

What is Easy Java Simulation?

EJS is a software tool created to help science teachers and students with little or no programming background easily visualize scientific phenomena. Although the freeware application caters to scientific simulations, EJS can be applied to a wide variety of concepts.

Download and Install:

Easy Java Simulations has been written completely in Java language and, as such, can be run on any platform that supports Java.

System Requirements:

Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.5 or later.

Linux system.

In my case I used Ubuntu 10.10.

Download the current version from here :


Unzip the distribution file. This will create a new folder

Start EJS by typing

java -jar EjsConsole.jar

Thats it. EJS console will open to start simulation programming.
