Session Abstract & Resources:    (3AON)

The main subject for today's session is tabbing. We will be looking into the rationale of the BioPortal team's architectural decision to use "tabs" as the mechanism to add/remove functionality, and how code extensions "plugin" to their exisiting codebase. We will review issues that have been encountered, and attempt to make a disposition on how we shall approach this.    (3AP9)

BioPortal "tab" implementation details (provided by PaulAlexander) are at:    (3B29)

At this "OOR Architecture & API" series of meetings, we are going through the process of producing the actual OOR specification. It will be run as a workshop where the straw man proposal will be discussed and modified as needed.    (3APA)

The various architectures and APIs for ontology repositories presented for consideration are available at OpenOntologyRepository_Architecture    (3APB)

Here is the status of the strawman architecture: OpenOntologyRepository_Architecture/Candidate03    (3APC)

In addition, there is an API of the core services that was obtained from anearlier implementation BioPortal, which is not entirely compatible with the straw man architecture, but furnishes a starting point. This API will also be discussed and modified as needed.    (3APD)

Finally, we need to agree on a plan for completing the development of the specification.    (3APG)

Here is the proposed organizing plan: OpenOntologyRepository_Architecture/GettingOrganized    (3APH)

We encourage all participants to update your candidate contributions to ensure your ideas are known and understood.    (3API)
