Protégé Wizards allow some automation of several common modelling tasks.
Version 1.0 now available for Protégé version 3.x, and provides several new features as well as an improved interface.
new - meta imports for patterns optional (options now in Project->Configure menu)
The currently bundled wizards are capable of reducing some of the effort in building a model and also attempt to encourage good modelling.
Currently, the wizards provided allow you to:
- create a set of subclasses from a text list allowing drag and drop, tab-indenting for tree creation, and pre/postfix addition *
- similarly, create a set of instances (individuals in OWL) from a text list *
- quickly edit multiple SomeValuesFrom restrictions on properties for a set of classes and add closure and default fillers
- create a Value Partition Pattern and its associated value classes
- create an Enumeration Pattern, including all the instances required as its values
- create an OWL List Pattern, that helps to specify order in collections of instances
- create an RDF List Pattern, that can constrain the range of its values to a particular class
- create an N-ary Relation Pattern, that represents a property as a class to allow additional information to be added to relationships
- add annotations to multiple classes at once - useful in combination with Dublin Core for authoring
- move multiple resources (classes or properties) to a new namespace to help organise larger ontologies
- add new classes easily when the display slot has been changed from :NAME *
* Wizards available to non-OWL users
Entering many classes, using tabs to create the hierarchy
Quickly adding fillers for restrictions using a matrix
Selecting several classes to move to a new namespace
for Protégé 3.2 beta
- full 1.0 beta build 15 (as packaged with distribution)
- wizards for the Bio domain beta release for creating protein sequences and motifs
- Source code available from Protégé subversion
Last updated: 1st Nov 2006
- remove any old version of the wizards from the Protégé plugins folder
- unzip the download into the plugins folder
- Wizards are available in the Tools menu
- Hovering over the menu item gives a very brief explanation of each wizard's function
- Wizards can be greyed out if for some reason it doesn't make sense to activate them at the current time (eg you cannot edit restrictions if there are no properties in the model). The tooltip text should give you an idea of why the wizard is disabled.
- Introduction and logging pages can be turned off once you are familiar with the wizards
