Augmented Syntax Diagrams: Demo Tools for ASD English Language Parsing  and Learning

NOTE: Our team is in the process of renewing certificates reviewing and upgrading our site and it's desktop applications. We are also experimenting with different Java versions and setups.

Augmented Syntax Diagrams (ASDs) provide a graphical framework to represent grammars of natural languages as directed graphs -- that is, as networks of nodes and edges. Nodes represent instances (or usages) of words and phrase types in a language such as English.

 

Java Web Start (JWS) was deprecated in Java 9, and starting with Java 11, Oracle removed it from their JDK distributions. So we have been testing OpenWebStart, an open source re-implementation of the Java Web Start technology and can be downloaded and installed very easily. We concluded early on that it works a lot better. 

Among the pre-requisites for successfully running  the Java Web Start (JWS) Demo Apps is a correctly configured JVM:

The tool used with the  java 8 Oracle version is a command called jcontrol 

used like so:

user$:/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8/bin$ ./jcontrol. 

This will open the Java Control Panel.  Alternatively you can edit the file "exception.sites" in your home java file  "~/.java/deployment/security/" path.

To run the demos you must have the following sites listed off the Security tab:

  • http://www.asdnetworks.com
  • https://www.asd-networks.com

NOTE: Our team is in the process of renewing the certificates again as they were only good for one year and is reviewing and upgrading the site and the desktop applications. We are also experimenting with different Java versions and setups.
