SIGHT

SIGHT is a code generator set to create a user-defined system of Web robots, realising arbitrary workflow. It generates Web robots that can be based on Stalker algorithm, HTML structure, etc. This task is frequent in bioinformatics.

    Release Notes: This is a routine evolutionary step from 3.1.0 alpha, being more stable and efficient. If 3.1.0 alpha was not performing as you expected, upgrading is highly recommended.

      Release Notes: alpha WSDL is upgraded from 1.0 to 1.1, implementing the import statement and more complete support of XML schema constructs. The XSLT transform generator that parses WSDL responses has been extended. A great example of such WSDL is NCBI E-tools.An auto update system has been implemented, able to upgrade only modified files and changed parts of archives (also changed parts of the source code). This will allow you to add minor enhancements and fix smaller bugs immediately, without waiting for the ordinary new version release.

        Release Notes: Sight now supports workflows, containing loops, and confluences. A cross-platform implementation of the WSDL-compatible protocol allows you to integrate Web services using this way of communication. The whole Sight workflow now can be converted into a single Sight agent. Such combined agents are valuable not just as an “elementary units” in more complicated workflows, but also as simply usable modules for Java programmers. Sight provides a “mini environment” to test and create data filters based on Java regular expressions. There is an improved user environment and many smaller enhancements.

          Sight is getting more and more complex. It is possible to concentrate further development in many possible directions. Where to focus the attention? You can help us by telling your opinion using this feedback form (http://jsight.sourceforge.net/feedback.htm). The form contains check boxes only and will not take much your time.

          Sight 3.0.0 alpha released (WSDL, loops, etc)

          Sight 3.0.0 alpha is developed by Audrius Meškauskas as a
          subsequent stage of the GPL-based Sight project, initially
          started in Ulm
          university. This release has several important new features:


          Sight now supports workflows, containing loops
          and confluences. This allows to implement much
          more variable strategies of the bioinformatical research.
          Built – in Smith and Waterman search
          allows searching the local database for the related
          sequences.
          Cross platform implementation of WSDL
          compatible protocol allows to integrate web services
          using this way of communication.
          The whole Sight workflow now can be converted into a
          single Sight agent. Such combined agents
          are valuable not just as an “elementary units”
          in more complicated workflows, but also as a simply
          usable modules for java programmer.
          Sight now has agents for reading and writing in SwissProt
          and FASTA formats an can be used as a system to search or
          classify data in flat files having these formats.
          Sight provides a “mini environment” to test and
          create data filters, based on java regular expressions.
          Improved user environment (for example, possibility to
          copy/paste a part of workflow) makes creating of
          workflows easier.
          XML agent generator supports namespaces.
          Table agent generator supports turned tables and some
          cases when the response must be composed from the several
          tables in the document.
          Manual landmark marking agent generator now uses regular
          expressions to specify landmarks.
          Sight now can work with workflows where the final result
          is a graph rather than a table. The annotation event
          listener accepts registers events when two named nodes
          must be connected by the named link. Generated graphs can
          be viewed using CytoScape (see http://www.cytoscape.org/).
          The new version has a large number of the other small
          improvements and fixed bugs.

          This alpha-pre release is still not properly documented. While
          the user manual is in preparation, we suggest to read the button
          tool tips and try to understand the general logic of the program.
          Audrius
          Meškauskas will also be glad to answer all questions.
