A REFERENCE ONTOLOGY BASED APPROACH FOR SERVICE ORIENTED ONTOLOGY MANAGEMENT

Abstract

To establish effective information exchange among applications in a distributed B2B environment, the business participants are not only required to share their functions or service interfaces, but in many cases, they also need to exchange their data models. Ontology, as a popular semantic form of knowledge representation, can be used to represent data models, thus allowing applications to locate and integrate these models in a more intelligent way. In this paper, we introduce a reference ontology based approach for service oriented ontology management. Specifically, STAR, a domain specific reference ontology, is built and used for the experiments in a real life case. Furthermore, in order to validate and evaluate our approach and implementation, a prototype system is developed to provide ontology deploying, browsing and mapping operations on a service-oriented mechanism. Our experiments have provided promising results, which are consistent with our original ideas of managing ontologies and optimizing ontology mappings to facilitate data interoperability in a distributed environment.
