LarKC platform v3.0 release

Posted October 6th, 2011

The LarKC project’s development team would like to announce a new release (v.3.0) of the LarKC platform, which is available for downloading here.

The new release is a considerable improvement of the previous release (v.2.5), with the following distinctive features:

PLATFORM

  • New (plain) plug-in registry
    • light-weight plug-in loading and thus very low platform’s start-up time
    • adding/removing/replacing the plug-ins during the platform run, so that no restart is needed
    • the plug-in registry from the previous releases, which is based on the Cyc’s Knowledge Base with extended reasoning capabilities, can still be used if the platform is started with the “-cyc” option
  • New End-point support system
    • end-points became plug-able and can be added to the plug-in on-the-fly by means of the special registry, similar as plug-ins
    • added maven archetype that enables easy creation of new end-points
  • Improved html-based Management Interface
    • retrieval of the list of registered workflows
    • special field for specification of the end-point’s URL for query submission
  • Improved remote execution framework
    • the remote host’s properties can be specified in both ways – directly in the workflow description and in a separate file

DEVELOPMENT TOOLS

  • Considerably updated Workflow Designer application
    • specification of the URL where the LarKC management interface is provided (when the platform is running
      not on the localhost)
    • a possibility to load the RDF textual workflow’s description, edit it, and construct a graphical representation
      out of the textual version
    • reverse-engineering – construction of the textual description out of the graphical representation
    • an interface for specification of the needed end-point
  • Completely redeveloped Eclipse Wizard for plug-in development
    • support of Maven for creation of new plug-ins

PLUG-INS

  • improved maven archetype for even more easy construction of new plug-ins
  • extended set of workflows included

DOCUMENTATION

  • added quick-start guide from one of the LarKC tutorials
