jAscom is a Wrapper around the JACOB (JAva-COM Bridge) libraries for an easy access to the ASCOM Platform 3.0 out of Java. The project provides the whole functionality (methods, properties) of the ASCOM Telescope API Version 2.

Minor bugfix release. Alpha2 now includes the Focuser-, and Dome API, too.

This means easy and fast coding of java-applications for all sorts of telescope-controlling problems you can imagine, using a widely accepted standard.

Installation instructions:

1. Download and install ASCOM Platform 3.0 Full Setup.

2. Download 'jacob.dll' from http://danadler.com/jacob/ found in the JACOB binary distribution 1.7.

There is a newer version located in the FILE-Section at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/jacob-project/ (jacob_jre142fix_bin.zip).

This version could also be found in http://home.textdesign.com/jeamy/jascom/jacob_dll.jar (use 'java -xf jacob_dll.jar jacob.dll' to extract it).

Add jacob.dll to your Path.

3. Download the jAscom Distribution. Exctract it into a directory of your choice (jar -xf jascom.jar).

4. Compile the files, start your Telescope Driver and connect it to the Telescope or use the ASCOM Telescope simulator (preferred for testing).

Excecute com.jeamy.jascom.test.JAscomTest for some tests/examples.

(Alternative you can start the binary version of JAscomTest with 'java -jar jascom.jar')

5. Create your Application using jAscom. Examples are shown in 'com.jeamy.jascom.test.JAscomTest', 'com.jeamy.jascom.test.JAscomDomeTest' and 'com.jeamy.jascom.test.JAscomFocuserTest'.
