JPlag Web Start client

For uploading the files to the server you can use our Java Web Start application. To start the application click on the following link:

JPlag Web Start client

If clicking on the above link does not start the application, you may need to install the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on your computer. If the JRE is installed, but Java Web Start does not work, check the Java Web Start Installation Guide.

The JPlag server and our client currently support the following languages:

  • English
  • German
  • French
  • Spanish
  • Brazilian Portuguese

If you would like to translate JPlag into your own language, please contact us, so we can send you the required files.

Note: If you encounter any problems or think something isn't as clear as it could be, please send an email to Moritz Kroll. If you have any questions concerning your account or JPlag in general, please send an email as well.

Notes about the expected directory structure

JPlag expects that every program that has to be examined is situated in an own directory (<students-dir>). These directories have to be organized among themselves in the following way:

<submission-dir>/
    <students-dir>/
        *<suffix>

Optionally you can also let JPlag recurse into subdirectories.

Fallback Mechanism

If JPlag finds a file in the <submission-dir>, it checks its suffix. If the suffix is valid, it regards this file as a complete submission, as if it was in a separate directory. Using this mechanism, also the following structure is possible:

<submission-dir>/
    *<suffix>

Alternative structure

If your files are organized in this way:

<submission-dir>/
    <students-dir>/
        <sub-dir>/
            *<suffix>

you have to set the <sub-dir> at the "Advanced options" page of the client.
