Eight months ago we announced the dissolution of Zitgist LLC. This event led to the creation of a “sandbox“ to keep alive all the online assets of the company. Since this sandbox server was not owned by Structured Dynamics, it was becoming hard for us to update UMBEL and its online services. It is why we took the time to move the services back on to our new servers.
A New Home
Structured Dynamics LLC now hosts a new version for the UMBEL Web services. From the main menu at the SD Web site you can access these services under the “umbel ws” menu option (you can also bookmark the Web services site at umbel.structureddynamics.com or ws.umbel.org.)
This move of UMBEL’s Web services to a new home will make the future upgrade of UMBEL easier, and this will make the maintenance of the Web services endpoints easier as well. With this move, I am pleased to announce the release of five initial Web services and one visualization tool:
Lookup Web Services:
Inference Engine Web Services:
- Inference: Lister — list sub-classes, super-classes and equivalent-classes
- Inference: Validator — verify sub-class, super-class and equivalent-class relationships
SPARQL endpoint Web Service:
Note that the visual tool is using Moritz Stefaner’s Relation Browser.
Ping the Semantic Web
Additionally, the Ping the Semantic Web RDF pinging service is now the property of OpenLink Software Inc. OpenLink is now hosting, maintaining and developing the service.
