Primary Audience: College General Ed
Mobile Compatibility: Not specified at this time
Technical Requirements: web access
System Requirements System requirements for Bobby are determined mainly by the requirements of the Java virtual machine. In addition, Bobby needs 2 Mb of memory and at least 4 Mb of disk space for the installation plus at least 10 Mb for scratch space.
Bobby will work with a Java virtual machine version 1.1.6 or higher. Java 1.2 ("Java 2") includes many of the support classes required
to run Bobby, so Bobby for Java 2 only requires 1 Mb for the installation. Users with assistive technologies may benefit from using a
Java 2 environment; for other users there are no known issues regarding choice of virtual machine.
