Beans can run as a standalone application, or as a browser applet.

Some screen shots are available at this time.
Download the current version of Beans from its project page. Beans is
distributed in two alternative packages: the source package, and the
precompiled package. You need to have the Java Development Kit installed in
order to compile the source package. The precompiled package contains
.jar files and only needs the Java Runtime
NOTE: Beans requires Java 1.5 SDK.
In all cases you'll also need to have PostgreSQL installed, with Java bindings, as well as GNU make. At this time, Beans has only been tested on Linux and Unix platforms. It might be possible to get Beans compiled and installed in MS-Windows, under Cygwin.
See the INSTALL file for detailed installation instructions.
It is possible to check out the current development (and often unstable)
code from CVS. Building from CVS requires the following additional software
to be installed:
OpenJade, docbook DSSL
docbook 3.0 and 3.1 DTDs, and
Check out the latest source code from CVS, as follows:
