Downloads

You may download a Java Archive (JAR) file containing documentation, Java source code, and Java class files for the MRI Spin Relaxometry Library.

Version 27-May-2005 (478,024 bytes): sr20050627.jar

You may download a GZIP TAR archive file containing a test MRI input data set as well as an output file with the results of the spin relaxometry analysis on the test data set.

GZIP TAR archive (5,556,495 bytes): data3.tgz


Viewing the Analysis Results

To view the results of the spin relaxometry analysis on the test data set:
  1. Install Java 2 Platform Standard Edition (J2SE) 5.0. You may obtain J2SE 5.0 from the Sun Microsystems Java web site at http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/download.jsp.
     
  2. Download the MRI Spin Relaxometry Library JAR file, sr20050627.jar (above).
     
  3. Download the test data set GZIP TAR archive file, data3.tgz (above).
     
  4. Extract the file "srsolve.out" (17,629,219 bytes) from the GZIP TAR archive file. A typical command on a Linux system would be
     
        tar xfz data3.tgz srsolve.out
     
  5. Run the SRView program on the file "srsolve.out". A typical command on a Linux system would be
     
        java -classpath sr20050627.jar SRView srsolve.out

Instructions for using the SRView program are in the technical report (above).


System Requirements

The MRI Spin Relaxometry Library was developed using Java 2 Platform Standard Edition (J2SE) 5.0, also known as Java Development Kit (JDK) 1.5.0.

Program SRSolve uses mpiJava, a Java implementation of the Message Passing Interface (MPI) standard for parallel programming on cluster computers. To run this program, the mpiJava distribution must be installed. (The mpiJava distribution is not part of the Library.) For further information about MPI, see the MPI Standard (http://www-unix.mcs.anl.gov/mpi/). For further information about mpiJava and to obtain the mpiJava distribution, see the mpiJava Home Page (http://aspen.ucs.indiana.edu/pss/HPJava/mpiJava.html). For further information about running the SRSolve program, see the package summary documentation and the SRSolve documentation.

Note: mpiJava is not needed to run the SRView program.


Installation

The Library is distributed as a Java Archive (JAR) file including Java class files, Java source files, and Javadoc.

To run the programs, simply store the JAR file somewhere and specify the JAR file in the Java class path.

To examine the Java source files and Javadoc, unpack the JAR file. The Javadoc home page is in the file "doc/index.html" under the directory where the JAR file was unpacked.
