Abstract

Over the last three years, the number of developed Semantic Web tools has fastly increased. This huge arrival of new tools reveals the acceptance and credibility of the Semantic Web architecture. Nevertheless, currently available Semantic Web tools are limited to work only with few layers of the Semantic Web architecture. Therefore, there is a need for a new generation of Semantic Web tools integrating the functionality of several layers, in order to be easily used and tested by every web programmer/user. In this paper, we propose the architecture and describe the development of a new Semantic Web tool, named Integrated Editor of Semantic Annotations, Ontologies and Resource Description Framework for the Semantic Web (SWedt). This tool integrates the majority of standardized Semantic Web technologies and allows the easy creation of Semantic Web documents by web programmers/users.
