Abstract

Orient is a project to develop an ontology engineering tool that integrates into existing industry tooling environments – the Eclipse platform and the WebSphere Studio developing tools family. This paper describes how two important issues are addressed during the project, namely tool integration and scalability. We show how Orient morphs into the Eclipse platform and achieves UI and data level integration with the Eclipse platform and other modelling tools. We also describe how we implemented a scalable RDF(S) storage, query, manipulation and inference mechanism on top of a relational database. In particular, we report the empirical performance of our RDF(S) closure inference algorithm on a DB2 database.
