Downloading and installation of JClic
JClic is a Java application
distributed through the WebStart
technology. The first time you click on the links of this page the programme
files are downloaded, and will remain installed in the computer. From
there, the programmes can be launched either from the Java
WebStart control panel or through the icons created on the desktop
and in the start menu. The Internet connection is only necessary the
first time the applications are activated.
The programs should be started automatically when doing click in the
links of this page. If not, probably the Java system
of your computer needs to be updated.
It is the main programme, used for doing the activities. It
allows you to create and organize your own library of projects,
and to choose between different graphic environments and operating
This tool allows you to create and modify JClic
projects, in a very intuitive and visual environment. The activities
can be embedded in a web page, or integrated into a library
of projects in order to be used by JClic. The tool also offers
the possibility of converting packages of activities made with
Clic 3.0 into the new JClic format.
The best way of discovering the possibilities of JClic and learning
how to create new applications is to see the demonstration activities
and to examine them. This button will take you to a page from
which you will be able to download and integrate them into your
library of projects.
This module allows the management
of a database in which the results obtained by the students when
carrying out the activities of the JClic projects are compiled.
The programme works in a network and offers the possibility
of generating statistical reports of the results.
It's important to read the installation
guide before first use.
Sorry! by now, this guide is only available in Spanish,
Catalan and German
(thanks to Eduhi). We are working in the English version.
One of the advantages of the WebStart system
is to have the programs automatically updated as corrections and improvements
are released, without having to download it manually. If you prefer
not to use this system, or if you need to do a manual installation (for
example, in computers that do not have Internet connection), there is
also the possibility of downloading an executable installer (for Windows
systems) or a ZIP file in which you will find the files and the installation
instructions (for Linux, Mac and Solaris):
jclic-0.3.2.17.exe (3.2 MB - 23 Oct 2022)
NEW: You can now install JClic from Flathub, the app store compatible with all GNU/linux distributions.
WARNING: JClic packages in Debian and Ubuntu are very old and do not work properly! It is recommended to use the official JClic repository or Flathub for best results.
This ZIP file is intended only for manual installation in systems that don't include JClic packages:
jclic-0.3.2.17.zip (3.2 MB - 23 Oct 2022)
Shortcuts for the applications
in the desktop and in the start menu can be created by Java
WebStart. The visual aspect of these shortcuts can be improved replacing
their original icons by one of the images included in this
