InsightŪ Java Client System Requirements and Quick Start Guide
The Java Client has been designed for the researcher and those desiring advanced software functionality, including higher resolution printing, and enhanced zooming and panning capabilities, amongst others. The 5.5 Java Client continues the special feature that enables users to open multiple collections in the same workspace, at the same time using the file/open collection menu, and highlighting more than one collection. The Java client is more than a viewer, it is a platform to explore and combine different visual resources. There is a one time download required.

You can view several collections from one category simultaneously with this file/open collection menu, or, if you would like to view several collections from different categories simultaneously, open a collection from the view all category.
