Hi -
Biojava historians eh?
I suppose the best place to look would be the biojava page. www.biojava.org. There is also a biojava in anger page that contains some tutorial material that might be of use. There is also some background and demos/ tutorials off the main biojava page.
I think (someone correct me if I'm wrong here) it got up and running around 1998 with Matthew Pocock and Thomas Down at the Sanger Centre (now Sanger institute). It currently has about 5 core developers and ~50 peoples names appear in @author tags on the code. The last stable release was biojava 1.3 (although we should probably put out the accumulated bug fixes). The development version is biojava-live that has > 1000 classes and far too many lines of code to count!
Feel free to post other questions to the list.
- Mark

	  my name is James. I'm a 3rd year bioinformatics student studying
	  at UNSW.
	  I'm in a team of 3, and together we are researching biojava, it's
	  history, current state and so forth. I'm finding though there is
	  an absense of formal commentary on biojava.
	  So I was wondering, how one might find out more about biojava. We
	  are hoping to understand biojava from the inside. We also hope to
	  make use of it, and ultimately, as naive as it may seem, contribute
	  to the open source project if possible.
	  Any comments or feed back is welcome, and would be greatly
	  kind regards,
