The plugin allows users of the Neon Toolkit

  • to visualise the integration process of data sources
  • to have quick access to various tools related to the integration
  • to investigate complex links between ontologies, queries and data sources

This plugin depends on the DataSources plugin in order to find data sources and which ontologies are imported. It recognises four types of data sources - database, XML, web services and Adabas. For additional data sources, the EII Navigator functionality should be extended by additional plugins. Importing XML schemas without a linked external document leaves no ruled that would identified a data source ontology. That is why these ontologies are not marked as such. The Visualisation mechanism allows for overlapping of some nodes (ontologies, queries or data sources) inside the respective panels. This was allowed to decrease the complexity of the algorithm and the size of the horizontal scroll when reordering the elements. Adding menu items and actions to the drop down menu of each artifact in the EII Navigator view is done by external plugins. The Ontology Visualiser action is an example of one such extension. More should be added by the respective plugins.

Note: This plug-in requires the extended Version of the NeOn Toolkit, which is not supported anymore.
