JME Molecular Editor is a Java applet which allows to draw / edit molecules and reactions and to display molecules directly within an HTML page. Editor can generate SMILES or MDL mol file of created molecules.

This distribution contains the JME.jar (the actual executable) and several support files :

index.html - this file
jme.html - brief overview of JME capabilities
jme_installation.html - installation instructions
jme_instructions.html - basic instructions how to use JME
jme_functions.html - description of editor's public functions
jme_example1.html, jme_example2.html, jme_example3.html and jme_example4.html - four example files

Additional information about JME may be found at the JME Home Page kindly provided by Molinspiration Cheminformatics.

I am maintaing also a list of interesting web services that use the JME editor. You may use these sites as an inspiration when implementing the JME.
