    Default need help with java API download from a website

    Hello there,

    I don't know if this is the right forum to post this thread but hope I get a solution for my problem.

    I am trying to download data from an open source project online. But the file is in java API and when I download it, it is a .txt file. The website is corpus(dot)quran(dot)com. I am not aware of java and its programming. I want to have the application available on this website as a program on my computer which can be run offline and give me prints. Is it possible? please say YES

    Your help will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks a ton.

    What's at that site is a linguistics API, based on a quran corpus maintained elsewhere (at tanzil.net). In tanzil's FAQs there is a "Can I download..." question which directs you to this site:
    Zekr - Quran Study Software for Windows

    Is that what you were looking for?
    Happy reading. Next time post a question about Java.

    Dear sean4u,

    Thanks a ton for replying to my query. It was so kind of you. The info you gave was really helpful. But what I am looking for is a corpus of Quran maintained at (corpus.quran.com)- a project by University of leeds. It is an annotated linguistic resource which shows the Arabic grammar, syntax and morphology for each word in the Holy Quran. If you could once go to this website and figure out how to download it as an executable program it would really be helpful.

    Thanks

    how to download it as an executable program
    I don't think you can - not from corpus.quran.com. What's on offer there is data (not sure whether it's plain from tanzil.net or whether it has additional markup) and a couple of APIs. An API (in this case) is a collection of programming tools and their description with which you can write your own software. You'd have to be a pretty good Java programmer to construct a standalone executable from the data+APIs.

    That's just my reading of it, anyway. Get in touch with Kais Dukes - his email is on the site - and ask him why there's no page that directly addresses your question. I'm sure he'll give you a good explanation - even if it may not be the one you want. Let us know what the outcome is on this thread, just in case anybody else sees your question and wonders the same thing.

    Just out of interest - why was Zekr not what you wanted?

    Thanks Sean!!

    Data from corpus.quran is not from tanzil. They are actually dissecting every single verse of Quran and giving detailed grammar analysis of every single word which tanzil is not giving. I am interested in grammar which would make a big difference in inferring Quran on own and comparing it with other scholarly translations.

    As you said I guess I'd need some java programming specialist to make an executable file from the data and APIs from corpus. I'd already written to Kais Dukes but he has not replied me back. A lot depends on his reply.

    I hope I could get some thing out here or from him.

    Thanks for all your help dear
