MOLDA for Java, a platform-independent molecular modeling and molecular graphics program written in the Java language, is presented. The molecular coordinates in MOLDA, XMol and Protein Data Bank formats can be transferred to the VRML1.0/2.0 format file and can be viewed as a molecular model by using a VRML viewer on the World Wide Web. This program can also be used as an interface to the semi-empirical molecular orbital program MOPAC and the ab initio molecular orbital program GAUSSIAN 94.
