The Quaestor knowledge base file (*.QKB3) is the binary format for Quaestor knowledge bases.

This file contains all knowledge, thus:

  • parameters, objects;
  • expression between parameters and objects, contraints, functions;
  • links to external programs and templates, etc.;
  • taxonomies of entities;

Moreover, a knowledge base can contain "static" or generic data. With static data we mean data that is constant and can be seen as knowledge (information, data with a meaning). 

Please note that the extension has been changed from *.qkb to *.qkb3 since the introduction of Quaestor 3. The binary has a different format, which is upgraded from *.qkb to *.qkb3 when you open an old knowledge base in Quaestor 3.

Knowledge based system

Together with Quaestor, it makes the development platform for knowledge based systems.

Furthermore, it is the fundament for a Quaestor project file that contains al project specific data and solutions in the knowledge based system.
