[protege-discussion] WebProtege Question(s)

Hi Ron,

Thanks for the feedback. As Jennifer said, we are quite busy now with 
the Protege 3.4 release. After the release, we will put more effort into 

The instance acquisition in WebProtege is not yet implemented. We have 
another project that uses GWT and Protege as a backend for instance 
acquisition that might give you an idea about how that could look like:

(on the intro screen, choose "Create new biositemap")

The multiple values of a slot/property should be probably shown in a 
list widget for instances, rather that it is now (we used the annotation 
property widget in Protege as a model). In any case, we would probably 
have multiple portlets for editing slot values, so that a project can 
choose  whichever portlet it is more appropriate. (similar to the form 
customization in protege)

We are currently working on finalizing the plugin infrastructure that 
will allow developers to implement their own portlets and tabs.

If you will develop meanwhile the slot value editing, and would like to 
share it, we would be happy to integrate it into the WebProtege
