If you have purchased and installed JMP® software (Version 11 or greater) in the United States, then you can use JMP to connect to the hosted SAS servers that are used by SAS® OnDemand for Academics. This will enable you to integrate JMP and SAS together.

In order to integrate with SAS using this method, you must:

  1. Register to use SAS® OnDemand for Academics
  2. Install the appropriate Jar files
  3. Create a SAS server profile within JMP
  4. Connect to the SAS server from JMP

This step needs to be performed only once.

Instructor Registration

  1. Access SAS® OnDemand for Academics.

  4. Create a course. When prompted to select a software application, choose Access to JMP.
  5. Invite your students to register for your course (see Student Communication for more information.

Student Registration

If you are a student, perform the following steps. Note that your instructor must invite you to register with a special e-mail before you can complete these steps.

Step Two: Install the appropriate Jar files

In order for JMP to work properly with the SAS® OnDemand for Academics hosted servers, you must have three specific "jar" files. The jar files are export controlled. They can be used only within the United States by United States citizens or legal residents of the United States. The files may not be shared with any party to whom the United States prohibits access to the files.

  1. From the Jar File Download Page, locate the appropriate file based on your version of JMP as well as your operating system. Then, click Request Download.
  2. Follow the instructions to complete the download for either Microsoft Windows or Apple Macintosh.

    Note: If the downloaded file does not start a program by default, locate the file on your computer and double-click it. A program will run and install the necessary jar files in the appropriate directory. It might take a moment for the program to begin to run.
