Oyster is a distributed registry that exploits semantic web techniques in order to provide a solution for exchanging and re-using ontologies and related entities. As an ontology registry, it provides services for storage, cataloguing, discovery, management, and retrieval of ontology (and related entities) metadata definitions. To achieve these goals, Oyster implements the proposal for metadata standard OMV as the way to describe ontologies and related entities, supporting advanced semantic searches of the registered objects and providing services to support the management and evolution of ontologies in distributed environments. Oyster GUI is an interface integrated into the NeOn Toolkit to ease access to Oyster servers. These servers act as repositories of OMV instances, thus allowing to store and to manage metadata about ontologies and related concepts. Main features:

  • Submit new OMV instances to an Oyster server.
  • Update already existing OMV instances at an Oyster server.
  • Remove OMV instances from an Oyster server.
  • Import ontologies which metadata is retrieved from an Oyster server.
  • Look for OMV instances in an Oyster server.
