Cogui (http://www.lirmm.fr/cogui ) is a tool for building and verifying knowledge bases. It is a freeware written in Java (version 1.6). Currently, it supports Conceptual Graphs and import/export in RDFS and Datalog+.

This year, we have particularly improved scripts, which are interpreted pieces of code allowing to freely manipulate objects of the KB. The main improvements are the following:

  • script management with better bug tracking and error reporting;

  • interoperability between scripts and objects of the knowledge base;

  • embedding of a Java library, which allows to import java classes into scripts (a feature required in the application developed for Qualinca).
