DeprecatedVernalis PDB Connector KNIME nodes package version 1.30.2.v202105121103 by Vernalis (R&D), UK

This node is no longer functional due to the shutdown of the remote webservices - Please use the new 'PDB Connector Query Builder' node instead

The PDB Connector Query Only (XML Query String) node was developed by Vernalis (Cambridge, UK) , based on the original PDB Connector node developed by Enspiral Discovery in collaboration with Vernalis (Cambridge, UK) . For feedback and more information, please contact knime@vernalis.com


Query Options

Clear Query
Clear all query options. If a flow variable has been set for the XML Query, this will also be un-set
Test Query
Test the current query, with display of result count. If a flow variable has been specified for the xml query, it's value will be used in the test. (NB This behaviour is different from that in the PDB Connector node, where the 'Test' button uses the query configured in the dialog, without reference to flow variable settings.). This button also lays out the XML clearly in the XML Query String box
Messages relating to the Test Query button are displayed in this area
XML Query string
The PDB XML advanced query text should be entered here. See above for details

Input Ports

Optional flow variable connection, which could contain the XML query in a flow variable

Output Ports

One-column table of PDB IDs that match query


XML Query
A view of the combined XML Query
Logical Query
A 'logical' view of the combined Query
