Abstract : The Generic KnowledgeBase Editor (EKG-Editor) is a generic editor and browser of KBs and ontologies - generic in the sense that it is portable across several FRSs. This generally is possible because the GKB-Editor performs all KB access and modification operations by using a generic application programming interface (API) to FRSs called tite Generic Frame Protocol (GFP). To adapt the GKB-Editor to a new FRS, we need only to create a GFP implementation for that FRS - a task that is usually considerably simpler than implementing a complete KB editor. The GKB-Editor also contains several relatively advanced features, such as incremental browsing of large graphs, KB analysis tools, operation over multiple selections, cut-and-paste operations, and both user- and KR-specific profiles.
