JuggleAnim has a newer version called Juggling Lab -- check it out!

You can use it to display juggling patterns in your web pages, learn from the lists of pre-defined juggling patterns, and invent new juggling patterns on your own. To use JuggleAnim you need to have a Java 1.1 capable web browser (try Netscape 4.x or IE 4.x) or have access to an applet viewer.

JuggleAnim is open source software, released under the GNU General Public License.

When JuggleAnim is run as an application from your local system, you have access to additional features such as the ability to save patterns as animated GIF files. To do this, you will need to have an appropriate Java Virtual Machine installed on your system. This is included with Mac OS X; on Windows it's likely that you will need to install Sun's free Java virtual machine.
