Quick Sequence Diagram Editor can be downloaded in these formats. To execute the application, you need Java, version 5 or higher
- ZIP archive (binary): The ZIP archive will be decompressed into a directory named sdedit. This directory contains the compiled class files, the FreeHEP jar files (for exporting diagrams in various formats), sd-client.pl and three scripts/batch-files for launching the application: sdedit.sh, sdedit.bat and build.xml
- ZIP archive (sources): Contains the same files as the binary ZIP archive, except that there are no compiled classes, but source files included. They can be compiled using the ant script (build.xml) inside. Type ant compile. Then type ant run to start the application.
- Executable jar file: The jar (Java archive) file contains all classes, including the FreeHEP library. It can be executed from the command line by java -jar sdedit-3.0.jar, or, on Windows and modern Linux desktops, where Java is properly installed, by double-clicking the file. Some archiver programs may, however, steal the jar file association away.
- Light executable jar file: The jar (Java archive) file does not contain the FreeHEP library and thus neither export nor printing are supported. Diagrams can only be saved in PNG format. The jar file can be executed on the command line by java -jar sdedit-light-3.0-light.jar, or, on Windows and modern Linux desktops, where Java is properly installed, by double-clicking the file.
- Windows (32 bit) executable: This is the same as the "heavy" executable jar file, so export and printing are supported. It allows users of Windows platforms to launch the Quick Sequence Diagram Editor by just double-clicking. The exe file is wrapped around a Java archive (you still need Java 5 or higher). It was built using JSmooth.
