The University of Chicago's Social Science Research Computing's RePast is a software framework for creating agent based simulations using the Java language (requires version Java 1.4 or greater). It provides a library of classes for creating, running, displaying and collecting data from an agent based simulation. In addition, RePast can take snapshots of running simulations, and create quicktime movies of simulations. RePast borrows much from the Swarm simulation toolkit and can properly be termed "Swarm-like." In addition, RePast includes such features as run-time model manipulation via gui widgets first found in the Ascape simulation toolkit.
