Version Changes in this version
PROMPT 3.0 see page for details


Description

The PROMPT plug-in allows you to manage multiple ontologies in Protégé, mainly:

  • compare versions of the same ontology
  • map one ontology to another
  • move frames between included and including project
  • merge two ontologies into one
  • extract a part of an ontology


Please note that PROMPT is only available for Protege 3.x and earlier series. If you are looking for a diff engine for Protege 4.x or later series, please take a look at the Protege 4 OWLDiff that implements several of the PromptDiff algorithms.


Documentation


New in PROMPT 3.0

  • Mapping mode: create a mapping between two ontologies, and execute the mapping using a mapping interpreter
  • Plug-in architecture: plug in your own mapping algorithms for initial comparison of ontologies or your own user interface components
    • For developers: developing plugins for Prompt
    • Available Prompt plug-ins (these plugins are installed when you install Prompt):
      • CogZ: use Jambalaya-style visualizations for mappings
      • FOAM in Prompt: use the FOAM algorithm for mapping
      • Synonyms: if you have synonyms for your terms, have Prompt use synonyms in creating lexical mappings
