The goal of rcdklibs is to provide the CDK jarfiles and thereby facilitate chemoinformatic analysis within the R ecosystem. The primary consumer of rcdklibs is the rcdk package but all of CDK’s functionality can be accessed by the standard rJava API. The libs provided in this release correspond to the 2.9 Release

# Example

# atm_container class
atm_container <- J("org/openscience/cdk/AtomContainer")

# instance of class
ac1 <- new(atm_container)

# call method (reflective). slow but easy to program/use.

# call method example (static). Cumbersome to program but needed for Java speed.
.jcall(atom, "Ljavax/vecmath/Point3d;", "getPoint3d")


You can install the released version of rcdklibs from CRAN with:


And the development version from GitHub with:
