Thursday, October 16, 2003 WonderWeb - Ontology Infrastructure for the Semantic Web
Members of the WonderWeb consortium have been active participants in the W3C WebOnt Working Group, contributing to the production of the OWL specification. We have also been working on implementations that support OWL.
An API for OWL
A draft release of the API is now available. Please note that this is work in progress and should at best be considered alpha quality code. In the short term we are unlikely to be able to offer much in the way of support, although comments and suggestions are welcome. The code is now available as an open source project to which they hope the community at large will contribute.
Source and binary distributions can be obtained from: http://sourceforge.net/projects/owlapi.
A simple OWL Species Validator has been developed using the API. This will check OWL-RDF documents for basic syntactic errors and will determine which particular sub-species of the language that the document belongs to.
