Q: How do I talk to OQAFMA from another program?
A: When OQAFMA runs, it listens for socket connections that come in on a given port. At the moment, the lab has one server running on port 4242 on fma.biostr.washington.edu. OQAFMA takes StruQL queries as input and returns XML. Socket conenctions remain open only for the duration of a single query, so you must reconnect to OQAFMA for each query you make.
