Remote KB Tab

The Remote KB Tab is an abstract Protégé tab that provides a framework for creating specific tabs to search foreign knowledge bases. The Remote KB Tab provides the API to display search results and relations between concepts in the remote knowledge bases, and to annotate your current Protégé knowledge base with information from the remote source. For examples of tabs that implement the Remote KB tab interface, see the WordNet and UMLS tabs. Users of the Remote KB Tab API needs to write their own functions to connect to and search remote knowledge bases, as well as any display that will be specific to a particular knowledge base.
