Customizing Your Interaction with Kali-ma
This chapter presents the Kali-ma NeOn Toolkit plugin, which exploits the versatility of the C-ODO Light model to assist ontology engineers and project managers in locating, selecting, and accessing other plugins through a unified, shared interaction mode. Kali-ma offers reasoning methods for classifying and categorizing ontology design tools with a variety of criteria, including collaborative aspects of ontology engineering and activities that follow the NeOn Methodology. Furthermore, it provides means for storing selections of tools and associating them directly to development projects so that they can be shared and ported across systems involved in common engineering tasks. In order to boost Kali-ma support for third-party plugins, we are also offering an online service for the semiautomatic generation of C-ODO Light–based plugin descriptions.
