These instructions are for J805 and later.

Note: since J805 is still in beta, only the zip or tar.gz systems are available for download. All-in-One systems will be made available after the final release.

J systems are available for a number of platforms and can be installed and redistributed for free.

J is available as a base system plus optional addon packages. The addons extend the language, and include tutorials and programming tools, graphics packages, interfaces to systems such as R, LAPACK, and Excel, etc.

The base system is the minimal system for running J applications. It includes two user interfaces:

  • Jconsole, a command-line front-end
  • JHS, a browser-based IDE

A Qt-based IDE is also available in the addons.


Most Windows or Mac users will want to use the All-in-One install.

Linux users who want a debian package should use the Linux deb install.

Android users should use the Android apk install.

Experienced users who might want more control over the steps allowing more customization, use Archive install.
