[bioontology-support] mapping service

Eventually we will upgrade the LexEVS instance in BioPortal to 6. Our
collaborators at Mayo will drive this conversion. We are simply holding
off for the moment to let others get the kinks out. This is not a
reflection on  LexEVS 6.x, just a general reticence to be among the early
adopters of a major software upgrade unless there is an overriding reason.


Our long term plans are to replace all of our backend storage with a
triple-store. This heart transplant is still some time off though.

It's not based on LexEVS as we created a solution specific to NCBO using a
triplestore as the back-end mechanism.

I'm not sure of the plans for using LexEVS version 6, perhaps someone else
on the support list could address that question.

Thanks for the fast response! 


Is your new comprehensive mapping solution based on the new LexEVS 6.0/6.1
or is it something specific to your appliance? Do you have any plan for
upgrading the appliance with the new version of LexEVS?

I think the new LexEVS provides inter-terminology mapping services as

On your version of the NCBO Appliance there is a prototype mapping
service, but it isn't great when dealing with a large number of mappings.
See the documentation [1] for examples, and you can replace with your machine's domain. We've recently
implemented a more comprehensive mapping solution but it hasn't been
integrated with the Appliance.

Mapping data is stored in the bioportal_ui database in a table called
'mappings'. The column definitions are pretty obvious if you take a look.

Hi Paul,

I have another quick question for you :)  Do you know which table stores
the mapping that user can define in UI for a specific term between two
terminologies like the one shown below? 

Is this mapping accessible through service calls? 


Thanks as always for your great help
