Reverse Engineering of Relational Databases to Ontologies [chapter]

Irina Astrova

Storing Owl Ontologies In Sql Relational Databases

Irina Astrova, Nahum Korda, Ahto Kalja
2007 Zenodo  
Relational databases are often used as a basis for persistent storage of ontologies to facilitate rapid operations such as search and retrieval, and to utilize the benefits of relational databases management  ...  A prerequisite for this storing is transformation of ontologies to relational databases, which is the purpose of this paper.  ...  By reversible, we mean that transformation of an ontology to a relational database followed by reverse transformation of the resulting relational database to an ontology will yield the original ontology  ...

Using Ontologies to Overcoming Drawbacks of Databases and Vice Versa: A Survey

Fatima Zohra Laallam, Mohammed Lamine Kherfi, Sidi Mohammed Benslimane
2013 Computer Science & Engineering An International Journal  
For a given, it is more interesting to take advantage of existing databases, to build an ontology. Most of the data are already stored in these databases.  ...  These databases can be useful sources to enrich these ontologies.  ...  This migration calls for reverse engineering of structured data (conceptual schema or relational databases) to ontologies.  ...

Automatic Generation Of Ontology From Data Source Directed By Meta Models

Widad Jakjoud, Mohamed Bahaj, Jamal Bakkas
2014 Zenodo  
Indeed, reverse engineering of a data source generates a software model (schema of data) that will undergo transformations to generate the ontological model.  ...  Through this paper we present a method for automatic generation of ontological model from any data source using Model Driven Architecture (MDA), this generation is dedicated to the cooperation of the knowledge  ...  Passage of the Relational Schema to the Ontological Model We quote the passage from relational database to ontology, [1] , [2] , this passage is determined by rules of transition of the elements of relational  ...

Moving Towards Semantic Web: Relational Schema to Ontology

Asif Sohail Abid, Muhammad Younus Javed
2013 Journal of clean energy technologies  
There will be relational schema to ontology conversion required while making such transitions.  ...  There is a need to have some automated or semi automated approach for this issue as it will be hard to convert relational schema to ontology manually.  ...  The reverse engineering of relational schema to ontology is a tedious work if done manually, as there is different association and cardinalities to look after among the tables while conversion.  ...
