[protege-discussion] Client-Server (Protegè WebProtege)

Hi Roberta,

It is hard to enumerate all the functionalities that WebProtege with a 
Protege Client-Server back-end offers to you. Here are some highlights:
- Collaboration: The Protege Client-Server architecture allows you to 
collaboratively edit an ontology, (make sure you activate the support 
for collaboration in the Collaboration menu). In the setup you 
described, Webprotege can be seen as "just another Protege client", 
meaning that any change that is done in WebProtege can be (almost) 
instantaneously seen in other WebProtege clients AND other Protege 
desktop clients that are connected to the same server.
- Lightweight ontology editing directly from your internet browser. 
WebProtege users don't need to install anything on their computer.
- Easily customizable user interface using XML file (available also on 
per project and per project&user basis)
- Enables engagement of domain experts in the knowledge aquisition 
process through simple user-friendly forms.
- Allows easy references to terms in other ontologies in BioPortal.
- Change tracking - a feature of Protege Client-Server. You need to 
associate a separate annotation ontology (a ChAO ontology that collects 
the changes and annotations) to your domain ontology (the content of 
which you try to edit). You can do this through the Collaboration menu 
as well. You also need to set this up properly in the Protege server 
- Commenting feature. In case some users don't want (or are not allowed) 
to make changes, they can still comment on the content of the ontology, 
and can carry out threaded discussions.
- Enforces different user access rights (as specified in meta-project 
and WebProtege configuration file)

The WebProtege wiki page explains these and more here (make sure that 
you follow also the outgoing links!!!):
