[protege-discussion] Programmatically export taxonomy from protege server

Yes there is, but you'll have to write that code as part of a plugin!

I built my own tab widget to do just this on-demand and then send an XML representation of the knowledgebase (borrowing heavily from the Experimental XML format) to a server via HTTP.

I did spend some time reading through the Protege source code - and that's the great thing about open source!

The source code for my widget is available on our site, if that helps.

There is another way of doing this that avoids writing a plugin and that would be to use the Script Console tab.
You could write some Python / Jython code that uses the export classes that you need and write the results to a file.
