Stanford Microarray Database: Don Maier

  1. 1. MAGE-TAB in SMD-Land Cate Beauheim, Cathy Ball, Don Maier <ul><li>One Validating Parser </li></ul><ul><li>Graphical Interface to create and load into SMD </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>Avoid the problem of multiple incompatible formats that has plagued MAGE-ML. </li></ul><ul><li>A single, reference MAGE-TAB parser/validator that can be used in both Java and Perl programming environments. </li></ul><ul><li>Easily revise the parser along when the MAGE-TAB specification is revised. </li></ul>Requirements
  3. 3. <ul><li>Formal grammar specification to generate the parser. NO HAND-WAVING ALLOWED </li></ul><ul><li>Formal UML-specified object model used to generate classes that represent the MAGE information that the parser may discover. </li></ul><ul><li>Connect the generated parser to the generated MAGE-TAB objects by calls to a hand-coded “apply” method that invokes the generated constructors and setters for MAGE-TAB objects. </li></ul><ul><li>While all this is in Java, Perl programs get access via Java::Inline. </li></ul>Design
  4. 5. <ul><li>Logic specific to MAGE-TAB isolated in a formal grammar, a UML-specified object model, and an “apply” method that links the grammar and objects. </li></ul><ul><li>Lexer/parser automatically generated from a formal grammar for MAGE-TAB using ANTLR. </li></ul><ul><li>MAGE-TAB information represented by objects automatically generated from UML by AndroMDA. </li></ul><ul><li>Either Perl or Java can invoke a parse and access the information generated as MAGE-TAB object attributes. </li></ul><ul><li>Validation stamping avoids unneeded re-parsing. </li></ul><ul><li>Java-based implementation runs on any platform that supports Java 1.5.0 or newer. </li></ul>Features
