  • Three little pigs, an old english fairy tale popularised largely by DisneyLooking at the story from the software point of view the issue here was that the three little pigs did not provide consitent APIs to access their houses. In this context the three little pigs are ontology resources and you the big bad wolf trying to consume them. The problem is they’re build using completetly different technologies, and you need to use different approaches to get to them.
  • Created in VennMaster on July 2010
  • OntoCAT brings semantic web to non-semweb peopleOntoCAT provides a uniform query interface to heterogeneous ontology resources including NCBO BioPortal and EBI Ontology Lookup Service (OLS) as well as local OWL and OBO files. The differences between each resource are wrapped in standard Java and REST services, enabling reuse and integration of ontology software notwithstanding wide variation in underlying technologies. Availability: OntoCAT is available under the LGPLv3 open source
