This web page are instructions to download the miniSeed Read/Write Directory with all the files necessary in compiling and running the miniSeed Read/Write Application. You will first need to download a free Java Development Kit (JDK) from ORACLE Java,

Click on the "JDK" Download Button and follow directions. You will need to know what kind of computer operating system you are working on.

You will also need a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on your PC to run the web app on your pc. Click on the "JRE" Download Button and follow directions. The same is true for the JRE, you will need to know what kind of computer operating system you are working on.

The miniSeed Read/Write Application software is bundled by 2 methods as a ZIP file and as a JAR File. Both will create the miniSeed Read/Write directory with all the source files to build the miniSeed Read/Write Application. The Build.bat and Run.bat are designed for the Windows Environment, but it shows the procedure & source files for compiling and running the Java Application. If you use the script you will need to replace the calls "C:\jdk1.7.0_25\bin\" in the scripts to the JDK directory that you downloaded to your PC.
