Java Newhall Simulation Model (jNSM)
A traditional soil climate simulation model.
The Java Newhall Simulation Model, or jNSM, is a desktop client application that employs Java 5 (Oracle Corporation) and Adobe Flex. The Flex and the Java are integrated into an Adobe AIR executable application. Flex is used to manage the model input and the formatting of the output products of the application.
The jNSM application takes batch input in the form of a CSV file, and also allows interactive input of data comprising a single model
Output products are displayed on the user’s monitor, and can be saved and printed in PDF format. Model run results are stored in XML format. (Multiple XML files can be converted to a single CSV file by using the XML2CSV tool.)
