The OWL API: A Java API for OWL ontologies

Matthew Horridge, Sean Bechhofer
2011 Semantic Web Journal  
We present the OWL API, a high level Application Programming Interface (API) for working with OWL ontologies. The OWL API is closely aligned with the OWL 2 structural specification.  ...  The reference implementation of the OWL API, written in Java, includes validators for the various OWL 2 profiles -OWL 2 QL, OWL 2 EL and OWL 2 RL.  ...  The SKOS API 18 [22] is a Java interface and implementation for SKOS [29] , built on top of the OWL API.  ...

RESTful Encapsulation of OWL API

Ramya Dirsumilli, Till Mossakowski
2016 Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Data Management Technologies and Applications  
OWL API is a high level API for working with ontologies. Despite of its functionalities and numerous advantages, it is restricted to a set of users due to its platform dependency.  ...  Being built as a java API the OWL API can only be used by java or related platform users.  ...  Therefore, any service that deals with ontologies on the web can utilize the functionalities of RESTful OWL API.  Wrap OWL API -All the methods in the OWL API that support working with a single input  ...

An API for Ontology Alignment [chapter]

Jérôme Euzenat
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Then we propose an implementation of this format as an Alignment API, which can be seen as an extension of the OWL API and shares some design goals with it.  ...  We present here a format for expressing alignments in RDF, so that they can be published on the web.  ...  It had benefited from discussions with Petko Valtchev, Paolo Bouquet and Sergio Tessaris. The author thanks the OWL API developers for their great work.  ...

OWL API for iOS: Early Implementation and Results [chapter]

Michele Ruta, Floriano Scioscia, Eugenio Di Sciascio, Ivano Bilenchi
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The paper presents an early redesign of OWL API for iOS. A partial port has been developed, effective enough to support mobile reasoning engines in a moderately expressive fragment of OWL 2.  ...  Semantic Web and Internet of Things are progressively converging, but the lack of reasoning tools for mobile devices on the iOS platform may hinder the progress of this vision.  ...  Acknowledgment The authors acknowledge partial support of Apulia region cluster project PER-SON.  ...

The Alignment API 4.0

Jérôme David, Jérôme Euzenat, François Scharffe, Cássia Trojahn dos Santos
2011 Semantic Web Journal  
The Alignment API provides abstractions for the notions of network of ontologies, alignments and correspondences as well as building blocks for manipulating them, such as matchers, evaluators, renderers  ...  We recall the building blocks of this API and present here the version 4 of the Alignment API through some of its new features: ontology proxys, the expressive alignment language EDOAL and evaluation primitives  ...  The Alignment API in a nutshell The Alignment API itself is a reduced set of Java interfaces.  ...

A Snapshot of the OWL Web [chapter]

Nicolas Matentzoglu, Samantha Bail, Bijan Parsia
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Tool development for and empirical experimentation in OWL ontology engineering require a wide variety of suitable ontologies as input for testing and evaluation purposes and detailed characterisations  ...  In this paper, we survey ontologies as they exist on the web and describe the creation of a corpus of OWL DL ontologies using strategies such as web crawling, various forms of de-duplications and manual  ...  The focus of our work lies on the filtering steps applied to arrive at a set with a a high density of (relatively) unique OWL DL ontologies.  ...

The Semantic Web takes Wing: Programming Ontologies with Tawny-OWL [article]

Phillip Lord
2013 arXiv   pre-print
The Tawny-OWL library provides a fully-programmatic environment for ontology building; it enables the use of a rich set of tools for ontology development, by recasting development as a form of programming  ...  It is built in Clojure - a modern Lisp dialect, and is backed by the OWL API. Used simply, it has a similar syntax to OWL Manchester syntax, but it provides arbitrary extensibility and abstraction.  ...  For example, OWL2Perl [6] allows generation of Perl classes from an OWL Ontology, while the OWL API allows OWL ontology development in Java [7] .  ...

Semantic Web Service Discovery in the OWL-S IDE

N. Srinivasan, M. Paolucci, K. Sycara
2006 Proceedings of the 39th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS'06)  
OWL-S is a service ontology and language, whose semantics are based on OWL.  ...  In this paper we will look in detail at the support for discovery for semantic web services. We also present the matching schemes, the implementation and the results of performance evaluation. .  ...  The techniques proposed in this work provide algorithms for the efficient use of OWL-S ontologies in UDDI, but we believe it can be easily applied to any OWL ontology.  ...
