Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper presents the OWL API a high level Application Programming Interface (API) for working with OWL 2 ontology's. The API is closely aligned with the OWL 2 structural specification. It supports parsing and rendering in the syntaxes defined in the W3C specification, namely, the Functional Syntax, RDF/XML, OWL/XML and the Manchester OWL Syntax. Finally, the reference implementation of the API, which is written in Java, includes validators for the various OWL 2 profiles - OWL 2 QL, OWL 2 EL and OWL 2 RL.
