The ADF Converter application:
The ADF converter application tool will check the files (ADF and MAGE-ML) for structure and content (well formed and valid) (see section 2.1):
The user (i.e. a submitter) will be informed of all problems identified during the process.
- ADF files will be screened against field definition devised in the specification[adfa] (annexe A) (structure check);
- MAGE-ML files will be screened against entity definition which is provided by a DTD[magd] (structure check);
- MAGE-ML file and ADF contained data will be verified, where terms have to be encoded using a controlled vocabulary: for example, against MGED ontology; or in a specific format: for database accession number validity; where applicable.
