Current Sprint  Sprint 58 (June 8, 2017 – June 21, 2017)

16X237 Agile Development - Sprint Status#16X237AgileDevelopment-SprintStatus-Sprint58
LexEVS REST Services

Discussion Points:

Goals of REST API from CTRP and others

  • Much simpler format with just thesaurus content
    • Harmonized with the REST (JSON) output with the CTS2 service.   This will make it compatible with users of both CTS2 output (JSON) and this REST service.
    • Is there an easier REST API to put on the top of CTS2?
  • There are current users of CTS2 REST service, so we need to make sure any API changes will have a similar format.
  • EntityDescription vs RDF label - how do we harmonize the data.
  • CTS2 is generic.  The NCI team is suggesting going to a more specific (RDF OWL) model for a thesaurus API.
    • Current SPRARQL REST calls to StarDog returns JSON (OWL2 model).

Decision Points:

  • Tracy requested from the LexEVS team: mapping to/from lexgrid↔OWL.
  • Kim will share with the Mayo team the output/format he has from SPRARQL REST calls to StarDog. 
  • Mayo team will see if anyone in our group has triple store expertise that may be able to answer questions from NCI.
