Cohabitation of Relational Databases and Domain Ontologies in the Semantic Web Context

Leila Zemmouchi-Ghomari
2018 Journal of Systems Integration  
This paper aims to bridge the gap between ontologies and databases in the context of the Semantic Web by highlighting their advantages and disadvantages, their complementarity, and the most popular means  ...  Despite the fact that database technology is mature, it is not yet compatible with Semantic Web requirements, such as Semantic Web language concordance.  ...  Heterogeneous database integration: Ontology-based integration uses ontologies instead of conceptual schemas, and thus, mappings between databases and ontologies have to be established. 2.  ...

Semantic conflict resolution ontology (SCROL): an ontology for detecting and resolving data and schema-level semantic conflicts

S. Ram, Jinsoo Park
2004 IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering  
We show how SCROL is used for detecting and resolving semantic conflicts between semantically equivalent schema and data elements.  ...  We propose a common ontology called Semantic Conflict Resolution Ontology (SCROL) that addresses the inherent difficulties in the conventional approaches, i.e., federated schema and domain ontology approaches  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors would like to thank the associate editor and the anonymous reviewers. Their valuable comments and suggestions greatly improved the quality of this paper.  ...

An XML Schema-based Semantic Data Integration

Dongkwang Kim, Karpjoo Jeong, Hyoseop Shin, Suntae Hwang
2006 2006 Fifth International Conference on Grid and Cooperative Computing (GCC'06)  
In order to address these issues, we propose a novel approach to semantic integration of scientific data which uses XML schemas and RDF-based schema mappings.  ...  Such data integration raises challenging issues: (1) Support for multiple independently-managed schemas, (2) Ease of schema evolution, and (3) Simple schema mappings.  ...  Schema Mapping & Integrated Searching The goals of our schema mapping are to overcome structural conflicts by representing semantic relationships between elements of xml schema-based data models.  ...

2015 International Journal of Database Theory and Application  
Many databases storage approaches have been proposed for e-commerce applications.  ...  Also, semantic web technology has been evolving in parallel, which uses RDF and OWL as storage formats for business data.  ...  Mapping Table between the Global Ontology and Local RDF Ontologies The mapping table contains the mapping information between the local RDF ontologies and the global RDF ontology.  ...

Agreement Maintenance Based on Schema and Ontology Change in P2P Environment [article]

L.Y. Banowosari, I.W.S. Wicaksana, A.B. Mutiara
2010 arXiv   pre-print
The main issues are how to calculate the change of local schema or common ontology and the calculation result is used to determine which algorithm in maintaining the agreement.  ...  This paper is concern about developing a semantic agreement maintenance method based on semantic distance by calculating the change of local schema or ontology.  ...  Approaches Review To answer user queries, a data integration system employs a set of semantic mappings between the mediated schema and the schema of data sources.  ...

Resolution of Semantic Heterogeneity in Database Schema Integration Using Formal Ontologies

Farshad Hakimpour, Andreas Geppert
2005 Journal of Special Topics in Information Technology and Management  
This paper addresses the problem of handling semantic heterogeneity during database schema integration. We focus on the semantics of terms used as identifiers in schema definitions.  ...  This paper addresses the problem of handling semantic heterogeneity during database schema integration. We focus on the semantics of terms used as identifiers in schema definitions.  ...  Database schemas are concerned with organizing data in databases and are derived from conceptual schemas. Formal ontologies carry more semantics than database schema definitions.  ...

A framework for OWL DL based Ontology Construction from Relational Database using Mapping and Semantic Rules

C. Ramathilagam, M. L. Valarmathi
2013 International Journal of Computer Applications  
Keywords Semantic web, schema, mapping, Ontology, RDF, RDFS, OWL, DL RDB to Ontology mapping process or the classification of RDB to Ontology mapping can be done in any one of the following ways.  ...  Ontologies lack semantically rich data because the manual construction of these documents are time consuming and also the domain experts need to understand the syntax and semantics of Ontology development  ...  4, No.1 [19] Yuan An, Thodoros Topaloglou, 2008, Maintaining Semantic Mappings between Database Schemas and Ontologies, Springer LNCS, Vol 5005 [20] Wei Hu, Yuzhong Qu, 2007, Discovering Simple Mappings  ...

Automatic Conversion of Relational Databases into Ontologies : A Comparative Analysis of Protege Plug-Ins Performances

Kgotatso Desmond Mogotlane, Jean Vincent Fonou-Dombeu
2016 International journal of Web & Semantic Technology  
However, the correlation between the resulting ontologies built automatically with plug-ins from relational databases and the database-to-ontology mapping principles has been given little attention.  ...  Constructing ontologies from relational databases is an active research topic in the Semantic Web domain.  ...  An algorithm called MARSON (Mapping between Relational Schemas and Ontologies) is presented in [1] . The algorithm establishes simple mappings between a relational database schema and ontology.  ...

Handling semantic heterogeneities using declarative agreements

Isabel F. Cruz, Afsheen Rajendran, William Sunna, Nancy Wiegand
2002 Proceedings of the tenth ACM international symposium on Advances in geographic information systems - GIS '02  
Our approach is based on the existence of a central ontology and on declarative transformations, called agreements, between the schemas of the local databases and the central ontology.  ...  An expert at the site of the local database uses another visual interface to specify the agreement between that database and the ontology. We have performed user studies for both interfaces.  ...  The mapping between entities like database, table, tuple, and attribute in the ontology and that in the local schema is usually direct.  ...

Discovering and Maintaining Semantic Mappings between XML Schemas and Ontologies

Yuan An, Alex Borgida, John Mylopoulos
2008 Journal of Computing Science and Engineering  
To alleviate this problem, we present a solution that heuristically discovers semantic mappings between XML schemas and ontologies.  ...  This problem can be tackled by defining a semantic mapping between an XML schema and an ontology. Unfortunately, creating such mappings is a tedious, time-consuming, and error-prone task.  ...  MAINTAINING SEMANTIC MAPPINGS Creating semantic mappings between XML schemas and ontologies is a complex process.  ...
