Ontology Information Web Services
These web services provide REST access to the EIModel API, a simple programmatic interface around the eagle-i ontology, see: http://search.eagle-i.net/javadoc/org/eaglei/model/package-summary.html. They are packaged in the
model.war web application and deployed centrally at http://search.eagle-i.net/model
The results are always returned as JSON, generated with GSON from the EIClass Java class (or Lists thereof), see: http://search.eagle-i.net/javadoc/org/eaglei/model/EIClass.html
Information about one ontology class - /model/api/ontology/class
This call returns details of a given ontology type.
uri-- URI of the ontology type for which information is sought
Get details about the class Tissue Microarrayer:
List subclasses - /model/api/ontology/subclasses
This call returns subclasses of a given ontology type.
/model/api/ontology/subclasses (GET and POST)
uri-- URI of the ontology type for which subclasses are sought.
deep-- if present, this argument instructs that a recursive listing of subclasses be performed. If absent, only direct subclasses are returned.
Get direct subclasses of the Instrument class:
List superclasses - /model/api/ontology/path
This call returns superclasses of a given ontology type, up to an eagle-i primary type (i.e. BFO ignored). Current limitation: only one path is returned; some classes have multiple inferred parents, in which case an arbitrary path is chosen.
/model/api/ontology/path (GET and POST)
uri-- URI of the ontology type for which superclasses are sought
Get superclasses of Tissue Microarrayer.
