Moby Dashboard as Java WebStart

Now available! Click-through to the full blog post for a link!

Andreas Groscurth at the Max Planck Institute, Cologne, has made the Moby Dashboard available as a Java WebStart app! Well done Andreas!

Dashboard is the most powerful and comprehensive “view” of the BioMoby project, allowing you to browse the registry and ontologies, add new nodes into the ontology, delete un-used nodes, and register/deregister services. The added simplicity of having this available through Web Start will surely make life easier for all Mobyers!

New Perl MoSeS Panel in Dashboard

For those developing Perl based BioMOBY services, there is a new panel in Dashboard!

The panel is called the ‘Perl-MoSeS Generator‘ and can be used to generate service skeletons for both CGI and SOAP based BioMOBY services. In addition, the panel includes a built-in editor with Perl syntax highlighting!

For details, start up Dashboard, and choose Help->Perl-MoSeS Generator, once the Perl-MoSeS Generator panel has been added into view (using the Settings->Panel selection)! Further documentation is coming soon!

Please make sure that you are running MOSES-MOBY version 0.86 or higher!
