jGnash is a free (no strings attached!) personal finance manager with many of the same features as commercially-available software. It was created in order to make tracking your personal finances easy, but also provides the functionality required by advanced users. jGnash is cross-platform and will run on any operating system that has a working Java 1.6.0 Runtime Environment (e.g., Linux, OS X, and Microsoft Windows). The older 1.x series of jGnash will run on systems that support a minimum of Java 1.4.0.
Main Features

    * Double-Entry Based Transactions
    * Account Reconciliation
    * Report Generation in PDF Format
    * Fast Auto-Completion of Form Fields
    * Schedule Recurring Payment Reminders
    * Support for Multiple Currencies
    * Track Investment Accounts and Transactions
    * Online Updates of Stock Prices and Currency Exchange Rates
    * Customizable User Interface
    * Scriptable through BeanShell and JavaScript
    * Advanced Server/Client Networking Architecture
    * OFX Import
    * QIF Import

...and more! jGnash is a constantly growing/changing application, driven by user feedback.

jGnash is a double entry system, but you can make single entry transactions to support easy entry of adjustments to account balances. jGnash uses Accounts instead of Categories for double entry.

Double entry in jGnash works like most other commercial personal financial applications. You will not have to learn a new way of tracking your spending.

A double entry financial application should not have to emulate the old process of a paper ledger when the same results can be achieved using an easier process. This was the reason for creating jGnash... to develop a personal finance application that is easy to use, accurate, flexible, and free!

Goals

A complete personal finance application including

    * Account management
    * Budget Tracking module
    * Reporting module
    * Support to plug-in advanced modules

The core of the program will be kept as simple as possible to minimize unwanted bloat. This means that you don't have to worry about extras like budget tracking and reporting using up valuable resources if you don't want them or only use them occasionally.
