==== Description: ====
Bibliography and citation library with file attachment support (and
rudimentary image viewer) and capability to export and backup data in bibtex
standard format. A basic search mechanism is available as well. A multi-user
system is working together with the option, to mark quotes and or
bibliographies as private (so all String values are encrypted and cannot even
be retrieved from directly accessing the database).

Helps organizing and exchanging quotations and bibliographies.

Programmed entirely in Java, tested and used with OpenJDK IcedTea on Ubuntu
10.04 (the platform it was programmed on - though initially I used the
proprietary Sun Java implementation, since I had not known about the
'Java-Trap' till yesterday :( ).

Special, as far as I know, are the integration of a quotation library linked
to the bibliography entries as well as file attachment capabilities (which
JabRef for example has as well, though).
Especially the inclusions of quotations has in my mind one main implication.
Since I help people exchange quotes (which if enough of them are used, may not
be under fair use any more) and even enable them to exchange whole libraries
with them (though this is yet to be implemented, since files are not yet part
of the backup), I aim mostly at Public Access and free texts to be quoted,
cited, organized, exchanged this way.

I dream (and for now this really is a dream, since it exceeds my programming
capabilities by far) of a server, that makes available all open and public
quotations and citations (together with the links to the cited publications,
if under a free license like public access or GFDL).

db4o (GPL v3)

jasypt (Apache License v2)

Apache commons - the lang and codec component (Apache License v2) [needed by

==== Other Comments: ====
I am a self-learned programmer and this is my first major work and the first
to be made accessible to others. I documented as best as I could (so each
class has a short description, all major methods and constructors are
explained, some variables as well have additional descriptions).

So, if there are necessary coding standards I have omitted so far, it was not
out of laziness but lack of knowledge. Any hints and informations in this area
are highly welcome - implementation will of course sadly be a matter of time

I have included a short user manual and some sample bibliography entries,
which should be open access (though I only included one pdf because there it
was explicitly stated, that it is possible to redistribute it freely).
I would remove at least the pdf probably before releasing all of it into the
wild - that reminds me, is there a necessity to clarify on the license of all
the contents produced with this program? Or is it like with most other
programs, that as far as I know, the produced output is not bound to the
license of the program?

Warm regards,
Georg Adelmann
