Hi folks,

please find Jacob version 0.25 at http://www.JDBMS.ORG

Jacob is a database and development environment coded in Java(TM). 
It's a GNU GPL open source project.

New in version 0.25 is as sample a fully functional chess server system with graphical chat and chess clients (samples\chess). 

This sample uses the distributed database features of Jacob to store user data (on server MAIN) and chess data (on server CHESS) and the messaging features so that players and chess server can communicate over the net. You move chess pieces with mouse drag and drop on the chessboard and you can stop and restart games any time.
