Abstract

In recent years, there has been a growing interest in integration of semantics into the Semantic Web environment, whose goal is to access, relate and combine information from multiple sources. With regard to this tendency, our work studies a mechanism to model ORM schemas in the Description Logic language SHOINK (D), the underpinning of a Web ontology language. This mechanism meets the key feature required by ORM schemas (i.e. identification and functional dependency constraints). It can be applied to integrate information not only from systems described in ORM schemas but also from relational databases into the Semantic Web environment.
