Executive Summary

Relational databases are considered one of the most popular storage solutions for various kinds of data and they have been recognized as a key factor in generating huge amounts of data for semantic web applications. Ontologies, on the other hand, are one of the key concepts and main vehicle of knowledge in the semantic web research area. The problem of bridging the gap between relational databases and ontologies has attracted the interest of the semantic web community, even from the early years of its existence and is commonly referred to as the database-to-ontology mapping problem.
