Project Status?

Some bugs left and I want to resolve the dig dependency. Known issue: Loading bar vanishes after first station.

How to start the application?

You can either import everything as an Eclipse project, adjust the Build path and do Run As > Java Applet or you can use the standalone version:

tar -xf standalone.tar.gz 
cd standalone/
java -Djava.library.path=./library -jar trace.jar
