Ontopia AS Announced the Release 2.0 of the Ontopia Knowledge Suite (OKS). This major release of the OKS brings: the full release of the Web Editor Framework for building custom topic map authoring environments, extension of the query language to cover tasks that had required, either API programming or use of the Navigator Framework tag libraries, new built-in predicates now allow querying all parts of a topic map, support for import and export of RDF data to topic maps, the free-download, Omnigator, now includes support for
hierarchy visualization, and more. The OKS uses the Topic Maps model to enable the rapid development of complex systems. Using the OKS, integrators can create
representations of diverse information and knowledge models, and then access and manipulate them with a common tool set and query language. The OKS, a Java toolkit for applying Topic Maps functionality, consists of a topic map engine with scalable API, J2EE-compliant toolkits for development of editing and browsing applications, full-text search, schema tools, and persistent and scalable storage of topic maps in an RDBMS. The suite will be available from 19 December 2003. www.ontopia.net
