Using simbrain as a library
Simbrain can be used as a library in a separate java program. The easiest way to do this is to simply include Simbrain.jar in a project's classpath.
Ant tasks to build some packages separately are also provided. To create a network jar by itself or just a network gui jar, separately from the workspace:
> ant networkguijar
(However these not currently used often and so are not well tested.)
To get a feel for how to use the Simbrain as an API, try opening up different scripts.
Applets can be deployed using the networkgui.jar. (More information on how to do this is forthcoming).
