This category covers the LAMS core components, and the services made available to tools.

LAMS Core has four major modules:




Teacher's Authoring Interface (Flash)


Teacher's Monitoring interface (Flash)


Admin and Sysadmin interfaces to manage tools configuration data and users (JSPs)


Run-time (Progress Engine)

Note: In the following descriptions, <basepath> is normally http://<host>:<port>/lams. Individual sites may be able to modify this site using JBOSS configuration files, so none of the base path can be hard coded.

Core Components
CVS Module lams_common: Becomes lams.jar file. Will not contain any web components. Contains the classes that match to the core tables in the database, the really core functionality (e.g validation of learning designs, import/export) and general utility classes.

CVS Module lams_central: Becomes lams_central.jar (if needed) and lams_central.war. Will contain all the shared web components, including stylesheets, gifs, JavaScript files, etc. URL: <basepath>/lams_central e.g. http://<server>:<port>/lams/.
