Jampack (JAva Matrix PACKage) is a collection of cooperating classes designed to perform matrix computations in Java applications. The current version of the Jampack is preliminary and incomplete. It is being released to see if there is enough interest to continue its development.

Jampack was developed by the author at NIST and the University of Maryland. A sibling matrix package, Jama, has also been developed at NIST and Mathworks. The two packages arose from the need to evaluate alternate designs for the implementation of matrices in Java. Jama is based on a single matrix class within a strictly object-oriented framework. Jampack uses a more open approach that lends itself to extension by the user. As it turns out, for the casual user the packages differ principally in the syntax of the matrix operations. I hope you will take the time to look at Jama along with Jampack. There is much to be learned from both packages.
