Main Document

Ch 01: Installing and Running EjsS 

written by Francisco Esquembre and Wolfgang Christian

This introductory chapter provides an overview of Easy Java/JavaScript Simulations (EjsS), the high-level modeling and authoring tool that we use to teach modeling and simulation. We first describe the installation process and the file structure of our program, and then run the EjsS console to get our first program on the screen. We describe how EjsS supports different programming languages for the modelling process. Subsequent chapters in this document provide a step-by-step introduction to the different parts of the EjsS graphical user interface, as well as to the modelling process. We finally instruct you how to download existing models created with EjsS from our on-line digital libraries.

EJS Manual Chapters 1 and 3 (French Translation) 

Ce chapitre d'introduction nous offre une vue d'ensemble sur Easy Java/JavaScript Simulations - Simulations Simples en Java/JavaScript - (EjsS sous forme abrégée), l'outil de modélisation et de création de haut niveau que nous utilisons pour enseigner la modélisation et la simulation. Nous allons premièrement décrire le processus d'installation et la structure de chiers de notre programme et par la suite exécuter la console EjsS pour obtenir notre premier programme EjsS sur l'écran.
