A Metamodel and UML Profile for Rule-Extended OWL DL Ontologies [chapter]

Saartje Brockmans, Peter Haase, Pascal Hitzler, Rudi Studer
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we present a MOF compliant metamodel and UML profile for the Semantic Web Rule Language (SWRL) that integrates with our previous work on a metamodel and UML profile for OWL DL.  ...  Based on this metamodel and profile, UML tools can be used for visual modeling of rule-extended ontologies.  ...  Acknowledgements Research for this paper has been partially funded by the EU under the projects SEKT (  ...

Formalism-Independent Specification of Ontology Mappings – A Metamodeling Approach [chapter]

Saartje Brockmans, Peter Haase, Heiner Stuckenschmidt
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we propose a MOF-based metamodel for mappings between OWL DL ontologies as well as a UML based graphical language for modeling mappings independent of a specific mapping formalism.  ...  Recently, the advantages of metamodeling as a foundation for the graphical specification of ontologies have been recognized by the semantic web community.  ...  Our proposed metamodel and UML profile for mappings extend our existing metamodels and profiles.  ...

Visual Modeling of OWL DL Ontologies Using UML [chapter]

Sara Brockmans, Raphael Volz, Andreas Eberhart, Peter Löffler
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper introduces a visual, UML-based notation for OWL ontologies. We provide a standard MOF2 compliant metamodel which captures the language primitives offered by OWL DL.  ...  Similarly, we invent a UML profile, which allows to visually model OWL ontologies in a notation that is close to the UML notation. This allows to develop ontologies using UML tools.  ...  Research for this paper has been partially funded by the EU in the IST projects KnowledgeWeb (IST-2004-507482) and Sekt (IST-2003-506826), as well as by the Graduate School IME -University Karlsruhe.  ...

Using ontologies with UML class-based modeling: The TwoUse approach

Fernando Silva Parreiras, Steffen Staab
2010 Data & Knowledge Engineering  
UML class-based models and OWL ontologies constitute modeling approaches with different strength and weaknesses that make them appropriate for specifying different aspects of software systems.  ...  We present a framework involving different concrete syntaxes for developing integrated models and use an OCL-like approach for writing query operations.  ...  Additionally to the UML Profile for TwoUse presented in Sect 3.2, one may use the pure UML class diagram notation to model OWL ontologies with OCL-DL expressions at class operations; or use a weaving metamodel  ...

MDA-BASED ONTOLOGICAL ENGINEERING [chapter]

DRAGAN DJURIĆ, DRAGAN GAŠEVIĆ, VIOLETA DAMJANOVIĆ, VLADAN DEVEDŽIĆ
2005 Handbook Of Software Engineering And Knowledge Engineering  
The ontology platform should be defined using MDAbased standards and it should consist of: Ontology Definition Metamodel, Ontology UML Profile, and a set of transformations.  ...  We depict our proposal for an MDA-based ontology development platform in order to illustrate this OMG's effort as it is in a very initial stage and a formal recommendation has not been adopted yet.  ...  OWL Full is an extension of OWL DL, which is an extension of OWL Lite, thus every OWL Lite ontology is OWL DL and OWL Full ontology and every OWL DL ontology is OWL Full ontology.  ...

Rishi Kanth Saripalle, Steven A. Demurjian, Alberto De la Rosa Algarín, Michael Blechner
2013 International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems (IJSWIS)  
The authors' prior work explored UML, entity-relationship diagrams, and XML as compared to RDF and OWL, identifying modeling capabilities lacking in ontologies.  ...  The paper proposes design-level modeling enhancements to ontologies by extending the OMG Ontology Definition Model (ODM) and OWL grammar with capabilities from the three aforementioned approaches, promoting  ...  UML profile only extends existing UML metamodel features, allowing the profile extension to act as a metamodel itself.  ...
