- The Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SE) 1.5 Beta 1 does not support the Java version of WebInterViewer. We recommend that you install J2SE version here to use the Java version of WebInterViewer.
WebInterViewer is a web-based version of InterViewer. WebInterViewer efficiently produces a molecular interaction network of good quality without computing force between every pair of nodes.
WebInterViewer improves on InterViewer in many ways:
(1) while InterViewer produces a drawing by computing force between every pair of nodes in each iteration of the optimization process, WebInterViewer produces a more pleasant drawing without computing force between every pair of nodes,
(2) WebInterViewer provides several abstraction operations to reduce complex networks into simpler ones,
(3) multiple molecular interaction networks can be compared for common moleculars and their interactions shared by all or part of the networks, and
(4) WebInterViewer is more convenient to use since it is a web-based application program.
There are three implementations of WebInterViewer:
Pure OCX version, OCX version, and Java version. The OCX versions are executable within a web browser on any PC with Windows system. The Java version (called InterViewer_Java) is executable within a web browser on any system, but slower than the OCX versions.
InterViewer_Java is executed by Java Web Start, which ensures latest version of WebInterViewer as well as the correct version of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) be deployed depending on a userí»s system.
WebInterViewer takes as input interaction data in several formats:
- Data from Microsoft Access database.
- Data on molecular, domain, and function in XML format.
- GML: Graph Modelling Language format.
- pnm: a pair of interacting molecular names, separated by space or tab, in each line.
- pid: a pair of interacting molecular indices, separated by tab, in each line.
- pid_label: a pair of molecular index and its name, separated by tab, in each line.
- pid_pos: an ordered list of molecular index and its position (x, y, and z coordinates), separated by tab, in each line.
- Data in xin format from DIP

Data files in pid_label or pid_pos format are automatically read if they already exist when the user opens a file in pid format. Please see the examples and download sections for the format of the above input data format.
