If you wish to be informed of future releases, we suggest that you subscribe to the (low traffic) announcement mailing list of diviz (for further details, please have a look at the contact page).

Should you have any problem with these installers, please report the problem, so that we can help you installing the software and at the same time fix the problem. Thank you!

diviz requires that Java is installed on your computer (JRE 6 Update 16 (or later)). You can download the latest Java version here.

Note about diviz-client_v1.15.1.jar:

When you download the raw .jar file, there is no mechanism for updating it, you will have to come back to this page when the software informs you that a new client is ready to be downloaded.

To run the jar file:

  • either double click on the downloaded jar file;

  • or run the following command (in a terminal window (Linux) or a command prompt (Windows)):

    java -jar diviz-client_v1.15.1.jar

(Windows users open the command prompt by clicking on Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt)

Command-line execution

Since version 1.4, a command-line is also available, for launching the execution of workflows without having to use the graphical user interface:

DVZ_CMD="java -Djava.util.logging.config.file= -Done-jar.main.class=eu.telecom_bretagne.praxis.client.SimpleCommandLine -jar diviz-client_v1.15.1.jar"

Executing a workflow:

$DVZ_CMD /path/to/diviz/workspace/weightedSum/current/weightedSum.dvz

For details on the available options: $DVZ_CMD -h


  • The command-line can substitute the workflow’s input files with others before execution
  • Option ‘-v’ triggers verbose logging.
