This project is structured as a multimodule maven project and requires maven for development. It is recommended to use and IDE that includes built-in maven support. As of 2016, NetBeans can have some issues with complex maven projects, it is therefore advisable to use Eclipse or IntelliJ.

Project structure

The modules of the project are the following:

  • sifrbioportal-bioportal-annotation-model: This is the core module of the project. It implements a custom (non-standard) JSON-LD datamodel matching that of NCBO bioportal and adds additional annotation capabilities matching additional post-processing annotations implemented in the proxy, as well as input/output capabilities from and to various formats.

Local dependencies

Some localdev dependencies are required and can be found in the localdev-dep folder. The dependencies will be installed automatically upon performing mvn clean install for the first time.

Note that eclipse does not automatically update the eclipse project upon changes in the pom.xml files, you may need to update the project manually:

  • in the command line, execute mvn eclipse:eclipse
  • close and reopen your project

Testing deployment

You can’t perform that action at this time.
