Description: Tools for accessing Amiga file system images in Java
About this project
This is a collection of software tools to access Amiga file systems.
At the core is a file system library written in Scala. I started to write this because I wanted to use my Mac to prepare a couple of ADF files for testing on UAE.
Since Github does not support downloads anymore, a prebuilt binary can be downloaded from
On most systems, a double click on the jar file's icon should work. Alternatively, the browser can be started with
java -jar adftools-1.0.jar
from the command line.
The project can be built with sbt. The library is in the adf-core module, the application is in the app module.
project app run
For building an assembly jar file that contains all dependencies, run
- supports Double Density disks
- supports OFS and FFS
- can create disks
- can add files to a disk
- rename files/directories/disk, move files between directories
- delete files (non-destructive)
- can copy files from a disk
- view icons from .info files
- stretch icons to display adapt aspect ratio
- 1.3 and 2.0 palettes for icon display
The ADF C library does not compile correctly on my machine and I needed a Java library to access ADF files anyways, so I just started to work on it.
The file system specifications were taken from
Ralph Babel's Amiga Guru Book, chapters 9, 10 and 15 Data Becker Amiga Intern, chapter 3.8
