Mining the layers of ontologies and rules provides an interesting testbed for inductive reasoning on the Semantic Web. Systems based on Inductive Logic Programming (ILP) could serve the purpose if they were more compliant with the standards of representation for ontologies and rules in the Semantic Web and/or interoperable with well-established tools for Ontological Engineering (OE) that support these standards. In this paper we present a middleware, \(\mathcal{SW}\textsc{ing}\), that integrates the ILP system \(\mathcal{AL}\)-QuIn and the OE tool Protégé-2000 in order to enable Semantic Web Mining applications of \(\mathcal{AL}\)-QuIn. This showcase highlights practical issues of performing induction on the Semantic Web.
