Active development of JAMWiki has ceased, and bug fixes and support will be limited at best. If you are interested in taking over management of JAMWiki please send an email to the jamwiki-devel mailing list.


I am the founder and major maintainer of is an educational site built along the lines of “encyclopedia that anyone can edit” with content interactivity enhancements. Next to educational articles it also shows demos in the form of Java applets. These applets are written and contributed by community, same as the rest of content. The site is free to use for anyone, and most of the contents are under various Free licenses. All applets on the site are so called "unsigned applets" that are not allowed to access your local disk and other resources. Server removes all signatures when rebuilding applet on the server side. Also, applets are approved to run only after testing by the site team and public code review. The engine that I wrote and maintain runs heavily modified JAMWiki, forked from 0.8.1. It and uses OpenJDK for builds.

This is currently just a tiny initiative about 30 applets, adding several every week.
