About Easy Java/Javascript Simulations

Easy Java/Javascript Simulations, also known as EJS (or Ejs, or EjsS), is a free authoring tool written in Java that helps non-programmers create interactive simulations in Java or Javascript, mainly for teaching or learning purposes. EJS has been created by Francisco Esquembre and is part of the Open Source Physics project.

The Javascript 'flavour' of EJS is possible thanks to the collaboration of Félix Jesús Garcia Clemente, coauthor with Francisco of the Javascript library that supports this flavour and main developer of the Reader Apps.

A brief historical and naming remark: Before release 5.0, EJS could only create Java simulations. Hence, its former name was "Easy Java Simulations" and its acronym just "EJS". Now, since release 5.0, EJS can create (also) simulations that use Javascript and HTML5, and hence can be run on tablets and smartphones (see our Reader App). This major change explains why we have renamed EJS as Easy Java/Javascript Simulations, and its acronym can be either EJS or EjsS.
