A Framework for Small Java Games


A Framework for Small Java Games is a lightweight framework for Java applet games. It includes an xml-parser, a very simple multithreaded scripting language and support for image cropping, sprites, double-buffering and networking. All compiles down to less than 50 KB. For an example application see Taleban vs. Robot. The xml-parser is also available as a separate distribution.

The project is released under the BSD open source license and hosted at sourceforge.net.


The framework consists of the following classes:
