BiVeS WebApp Client

bives logo BiVeS is a library based on the XyDiff algorithm. It is able to detect differences between two versions of a computational model and to communicate these changes.

The Algorithm implemented in BiVeS was published as

Martin Scharm, Olaf Wolkenhauer, Dagmar Waltemath: An algorithm to detect and communicate the differences in computational models describing biological systems. Bioinformatics 32 (4): 563-570;

This library facilitates BiVeS integration into Java based projects: You can use it to communicate with the BiVeS WebApp. Thus, you can easily compare computational models! More documentation on the BiVeS-WebApp-Client can be found and the GitHub pages of the SEMS project.

BiVeS consists of several modules

bives modules

BiVeS itself consists of a number of modules:

  • xmlutils is a library for advanced XML handling
  • jCOMODI provides programmatic access to the COMODI ontology
  • BiVeS-Core is the core library for comparison of computational models
  • BiVeS-SBML is a module providing special strategies for models encoded in SBML
  • BiVeS-CellML is a module providing special strategies for models encoded in CellML
  • BiVeS ties all modules together and provides command line access
  • BiVeS-WebApp is a web interface to access BiVeS through the network
  • BiVeS-WebApp-Client provides a Java library for comparing models using the BiVeS-WebApp
