CytoSQL - Requirements

  • A recent Cytoscape version (we tested 2.5 and above)
  • A relational database in a format supported by an existing JDBC driver. The driver should be added to the JAVA CLASSPATH. The database should be accessible from the Cytoscape workstation: if it is hosted on a different server access by an external client may have to be explicitely defined. Take into account that sometimes firewalls block typical RDBM connection ports: you should take the right precautions if this imposes problems.
  • The user should be familiar with SQL syntax and must understand the structure of the database(s) to be queried.
