ImseVimse: The IMS Editor Vimse

ImseVimse is a full-fledged graphical IMS metadata editor written in Java. It is a spin-off from the Conzilla project.

Note that all our metadata editing related activity has transferred to the SHAME project.

The code is free software under the GPL. Please feel free to try it out and give feedback. We are very interested in all forms of collaboration on this. Take a look at the API (javadoc).

Have a look at the MetaData interface. Please note that this is an abstract interface, not dependent on the XML binding. An XML parser could use this interface to build the meta-data model, as could an RDF parser.

Download a beta version of ImseVimse here. Run as:

 java -cp ImseVimse.jar [file.xml ...] 

Tested with JDK1.2.2 and 1.3.0. Source and all forms of developments is available from the SourceForge page.
