The goals of JRaceman are:
to be easy to use;
to run on Windows, Mac, Unix and Linux;
to be available for free, not requiring the purchase of any software;
to be freely redistributable, including source, so that anyone can fix bugs or make improvements for the benefit of all.
To satisfy these goals, Jraceman:
is implemented in 100% Java, so will run on any machine that can run Java;
is distributed without charge, includes a free database, and does not require any additional packages or programs to run (other than Java, which is free);
is distributed under the GNU General Public License (GPL) to ensure that it remains free and to encourage users to contribute their improvements.
