JOpenCC is a Java based tool to convert Traditional Chinese to Simplified Chinese and vice versa.
Since the foundation differences between Java and C, only the dictionary is the same as OpenCC. The mapping methodology is completely different from the native C Opencc.
The GUI part is based on the Standard Widget ToolkitStand (SWT). SWT is a graphical widget toolkit for use with the Java platform and it is written in Java. To display GUI elements, the SWT implementation accesses the native GUI libraries of the operating system using JNI (Java Native Interface) in a manner that is similar to those programs written using operating system-specific APIs. Programs that call SWT are portable, but the implementation of the toolkit, despite the fact that part of it is written in Java, is unique for each platform.
SWT is chosen instead of Swing because the interface looks more native and more responsive in SWT. However, it should be easy for a Swing port.
English, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese interfaces are provided.
Java 1.7 or above
SWT (tested 3.4, 3.7 and 4.3)
- By default the SWT JAR will be placed in ..\org.eclipse.swt\swt.jar
Apache ANT is needed to build the project
Build Lib (without GUI)
$ ant lib
Run with GUI (requires SWT)
It's suggested that to enlarge the memory for the JVM for processing long text
$ java -XstartOnFirstThread -Xms32M -Xmx512m -Xmn16M -jar jopencc.jar
-XstartOnFirstThread is required in macOS and Java 7.
$ ant run
