[bioontology-support] Extracting parent child relationships using the web service

Hi all -

I have been trying to get the hierarchical information as displayed on the
web interface @"" when a term is searched
in a given ontology -

This is what I intend to achieve =>


Given the information returned by the web service, we intend to
programmatic-ally build this hierarchy (really, display the fields as shown
in the screen shot above) in another system (open source application =>
clincapture) which is using bio-portal as the end point for medical coding.

What I have done so for:

1. I am able to use the old "" (I am yet to get
acquainted with the new web service) to extract the coded term for a given
verbatim term entered by the user in our system

2. I have tried to work with the view extraction service but it seems to me
that it only returns one subclass of the concept (the immediate sub class)
- I am looking for the entire hierarchy

3. I have also tinkered with the RDF term service but it would appear that
the generated xml does not have the entire hierarchy - It would seem that
the returned xml cannot allow me to walk back to the root element (as
depicted on the UX)

I know I am missing something or have probably not looked somewhere, can
anyone give me some leads as to how I can retrieve the information in the
tree view (With the hierarchy)? I will really appreciate the help!
