Cyc-Api: Problems connecting to OpenCyc

  • Jordi Conesa

    Jordi Conesa - 2006-01-20


    I am trying to write a Java program to access to the OpenCyc using its API. The problem is that the call of the CycAccess constructor never finish.

    I am using Windows XP, and Java 1.5.

    Does anybody have the same problem?

    Does somebody can help me with it?

    A include below the related code:

    Thanks in advance,

    protected static CycAccess cycAccess;

    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception
        System.out.println("connecting to the Cyc ...");

        Logger logger=null;

          cycAccess=new CycAccess("localhost", 3600, CycConnection.DEFAULT_COMMUNICATION_MODE, true);

    Hi , and excuse for the informal interruption
    I´m student from ISPEJAE Institute,CUBA and  i working in a desktop aplications, that use OpenCyc v2.0querys like:
    isa _asertions(for instance and example relation between term  )
    asertions(for class-subclas herarchy dependence )

    I  did  use the default constructor to create an instance of CycAccess
    CycAccess access = new CycAccess();
    ,but previusly click the C:\opencyc-2.0\scripts\run-cyc.bat ´s srcrip to start cyc server. It shows the following in a comand prompt:

    ;;  At this point the cyc http server is running and you can access
    ;;  Cyc directly via the local web browser.
    ;;  http://localhost:3602/cgi-bin/cyccgi/cg?cb-start
    ;;  You can browse cyc via the Guest account or perform updates by
    ;;  logging on as CycAdminstrator.

    and the aplications works!!!!!!!!!!,but only as a batch process, a  thread( an aplications working with directories, no user interfase). The problems comes when i try to use a java frame,with buttoms for user interfase interaction.
    It seem that is impossible to use AWT. Anyway i´m working in Eclipse Release 3.2.0 and JRE 5.0
    My stack trace comes as :
    org.opencyc.api.CycApiException: Invalid attempt to synchronously communicate with Cyc from the AWT event thread.

    Id: null
    Server: host localhost, cfaslPort 3614
    Status: Working
    Incremental results: false
    Timeout: 0 msecs

    Please sorry for the unplacent bothering,but could you please help me or know someone-were that could……..  8]
