You also need to install the Java Foundation Classes (JFC). JFC is available from Sun microsystems at http://java.sun.com/products/jfc.
In addition to Java, you need the jar executable file. The jar file can be placed anywhere on your computer.
After the jar file is downloaded, to run Universe you must type in the following command at a prompt (make sure you are in the directory where the jar file is located):
jre -cp Universe.jar UniverseMain
Note that the "U" and the "M" on UniverseMain must be upper case.
If you have the JDK and on the JRE, the following command should work:
java -classpath $CLASSPATH:Universe.jar UniverseMain
Please feel free to contact me if you have problems with installation or execution.
