Did you take a look at the samples here? 

It seems the jsword didn't provide a direct way to get all book names directly. (Please let us know if there is one). This is how I get it in groovy.

def bibles = new ArrayList()
      int nbook = BibleInfo.booksInBible();
      BibleNames bn = new BibleNames(loc)

      try {
        for (int i = 1; i <= nbook; i++)


          def gb = new Expando()
          gb.key = BibleInfo.getBookName(i).getShortName()
          gb.shortname = bn.getShortName(i)
          gb.cname = bn.getName(i)
          gb.longname = BibleInfo.getBookName(i).getLongName()
          biblekeymap.put(gb.longname, gb.cname)
          biblekeymap.put(gb.shortname, gb.cname)
          biblekeymap.put(gb.key, gb.cname)


      } catch (Exception e) {
    return bibles

I'm trying to get a list of all the books in the bible for a particular
Book, say the ESV. I'm really new to this... Any ideas if there are examples
on the net? I've fonud the Global Key list but that seems to have most
verses as well... Can anyone point me to the helpful apis? I seem to find it
really difficult to find it on the crosswire website...

What is a chapter? a book category? ...
