Hi, sorry no-one replied to your earlier message Mike. JSword is actually the cvs module for the 
jsps on the website not the sword API. There's been talk before about porting it to Java but I 
don't think anyone has got very far yet (I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong)
It would be great to see something though :)

In the sword CVS is the API documentation doc/api-documentation/
That and the developers page http://www.crosswire.org/sword/develop/index.jsp
are a good place to start, and post any questions to the list.
