Conzilla is a concept browser. It browses and edits 'context-maps', a construct similar to conceptual models, UML diagrams or mind-maps. Conzilla uses RDF to describe and distribute such models.


UMLS::Query is an umbrella for projects that create measures of semantic similarity for the biomedical domain. Our current project is UMLS-Interface and UMLS-Similarity. Our JBI-2007 article was based on Semantic-Similarity and Snomed-Interface.

Jbugz - Java based bug tracker and project management solution

Java based bug tracker and project management solution - the source code will be easy to modify - will be completely plug in driven (architecurally similar to eclipse) and will integrate with mylyn and maven. In second phase integrations with various scms (begining with subversion will be provided) The project will be completely Model driven and we will use Witchcraft ( ) as the tool to translate UML model to executable java code.

Idisc - Developement Using Integrated Software Chips

This project aims at the development of an Object-Oriented Application Framework that helps the application developers develop small business applications (applications between 300 to 700 Function Points) with minimum effort. It attempts to provide a system that takes up most of the development responsibilities of the user in a software project and assists him throughout the system development life cycle. The idea is quite simple. The developer specifies the system in the form of business object

Ytex - Yale cTAKES Extensions

IntroductionYTEX is: Clinical NLP: A robust, general-purpose clinical natural language processing system based on the Clinical Text Analysis and Knowledge Extraction System (cTAKES). Semantic Similarity: YTEX provides a framework for computing the similarity between pairs of concepts; this is integrated with clinical NLP, Data Mining, and Feature Engineering tools. Data Mining: YTEX provides tools to export UIMA annotations to machine learning packages, including Weka, R, Matlab, SAS, Libsvm, SV

Featurecomplete - A very light agile project management application

Feature CompleteIntroductionEnvisioned as a very light (and hopefully portable) implementation of project management techniques originally found in Peter Coad & Jeff De Luca's book "Java Modeling in Color With UML: Enterprise Components and Process". It may also incorporate some of the methods taught by Johanna Rothman, Jeff Sutherland, [ Ken Schwaber] and others for effective project management without the pain of using a tool not suitable to the job (you know who you are).

Plexus \\Plex�us\\, n. An intricate or interwoven combination of elements or parts in a coherent structure. OverviewPlexus is a unique plugin API for PHP 5.1.2+ It performs, what I’ve dubbed as “magic wiring� to re-wire any object method call on the fly as a “pluggable� call and automatically creates and calls the plugin hooks. It provides ultimate flexibility, and can assist greatly from the simplest of plugin APIs to complex plugin-driven applications. To create a Plexus, in the si

Bmda - Behavior-driven development of executable UML components in the MDA context

We propose to combine the principles of Behaviour-driven Development and OMG’s Model-driven Architecture (MDA). We start from Foundational UML, the minimal executable subset defined for UML, and we add progressively features in order to obtain finally a framework which addresses the essential difficulties of software engineering defined by (Brooks,1987) in his influential “No silver bullet� paper: complexity, conformity, changeability, and invisibility. The approach follows the Harel’s a
