Scientific Description: Cogui is a visual tool for building and verifying graphical knowledge bases (KB). Knowledge bases are represented under graphical form (close to conceptual graphs). There is a complete correspondence with the logical existential rule (or Datalog+) framework.

Functional Description: Cogui is a freeware written in Java. It allows to graphically create a KB, to handle its structure and content, and to control it. Currently, it supports Conceptual Graphs and import/export in RDFS and Datalog+. Wizards allow to analyze and check facts with respect to some constraints, as well as to query them while taking into account inferences enabled by the ontology.

News Of The Year: Cogui is currently under heavy refactoring to benefit from NetBeans graphical libraries, as well as the plugin-based architecture and Java 9 Jigsaw.
