The OpenJUMP Blog is now team work

Dear Blog readers and new or existing OpenJUMP users,

The Sunburned Surveyor was writing this blog over the past few years. This month after a couple of users found that they would like to present some OpenJUMP - we asked The Sunburned Surveyor if he would be willing to extent the writer-ship of this blog and/or to hand over the administration to the main OJ team. Well you can guess it already... from now on, this blog is run by a team of authors. Hopefully this will bring more frequent posts on "How-To"s (e.g. how to use a function or create something) and on new functions in new versions.

An integration of this blog into our website and wiki, will hopefully follow soon as well.

stay tuned,
stefan & all the others who work on OJ

Deactivating Tools in OpenJUMP

There was a question on the OpenJUMP mailing list the other day about how to deactivate or remove the tools that come with the standard OpenJUMP installation. (This can be done because OpenJUMP is built with a pluggable architecture.)


Ede responded with the answer. Turns out you might have to make a tweak in one of three (3) different places. They are:


  1. The "default-plugins.xml" file in the "bin" folder of your OpenJUMP installation.
  2. The JumpConfiguration class Java source code file.
  3. The OpenJumpConfiguration class Java source code file.

Note: If you have to make a change to items 2 or 3 listed above, then you will need to rebuild OpenJUMP from the source code with the source code files that include your changes.
