Note

This tool is never intended for use in real time production as an interface for LexEVS Value Sets services.

How to Get This Tool

As mentioned earlier, this tool will be downloaded when LexEVS package is installed. The start scripts can be found at <LexEVS install directory/gui/
Different start scripts will be downloaded based on operating system selected during install:
Windows-lbVSGUI.bat – for windows
Linux-lbVSGUI.sh – for linux
Linux_64-lbVSGUI.sh – for linux 64 bit
OSX-lbVSGUI.command – for OS

This tool provides the capabilities to Create/Edit/Delete Value Set Definition Meta-Data, Definition Entry, and Properties. Authored data can be persisted to the database. You can use this function to test the definition entry (rule set) without persisting the changes to the database.

Creating Value Set Definition

For example, we will create a Value Set Definition to contain only Ford and GM cars from 'Automobiles' Coding Scheme. There are different ways to do this, but for testing, we will make use of one of the existing Value Set Definition (SRITEST:AUTO:GM – includes concepts GM and all its children) by creating a Value Set Definition Reference and create a Entity Reference to include concepts Ford and all its children. Make sure that you have loaded the vdTestData.xml file as described under 'Loading Value Set Definition' section of this document.
