Ontologies in the computational world, and especially in the semantic web, are artifacts that are designed in order to make application requirements achievable. Coupling requirements to ontology design solutions is key: a design-oriented view of ontologies is presented, by introducing the Ontology Design Patterns initiative, and the eXtreme ontology Design methods. The application to a legal use case is exemplified. Several references to related work and state-of-art languages and practices are provided.
