Requirements (for MiToBo < 1.3)

MiToBo requires Java 1.6 or later.

Note: Java 1.7 is currently not fully supported!

The following external jars are needed to run MiToBo plugins and use the code.
Note that the binary zip file already includes all jars required, there is no need for explicit download!

MiToBo depends on the following external jars:

  • JAI ImageIO, Version 1.1 (only required for MiToBo 0.9)

Project internal libraries

MiToBo also relies on some libraries provided by the MiToBo project itself.
In particular XML schemes for representing the history graphs and MiToBo's online help are included in separate jar archives.

You do not need to download these libraries explicitly. If you download the binary zip file all jars and libraries are already included.

The MiToBo internal archive files included in the zip file are the following ones:

  • ALDGraphml, Version 1.0.0 (Alida extensions for graphML):
  • MTBXml, Version 1.0.0 (MiToBo XML I/O for several datatypes, based on XMLBeans):
  • MiToBo-Help, Version 1.0.0 (MiToBo JavaHelp pages):

The following library is only required for MiToBo-0.9:

  • MTBImageIO-Ext, Version 0.9 (improved image I/O based on ImageIO-Ext):
    • Binary jar
    • Source code zip
    • Alternatively, the ImageIO-Ext library can be used, which depends on the JAI ImageIO library and the JAI library.
      MTBImageIO-Ext is simply the TIFF part of ImageIO-Ext with slight adjustments to remove dependency on the JAI library.
