There are different representations of the database components that use different data formats. Such a representation is called binding, and form the connection between the virtual database containing neurons and concept maps on the one hand, and the concept browser on the other hand. The two bindings for which support is planned are XML and CORBA, of which only XML is fully implemented. On the other hand, nothing should prevent the use of, e.g., RMI, , ODBC etc.
