A flexible API and editor for SKOS

Presented at: 6th Annual European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC2009)

by Simon Jupp, Sean Bechhofer, Robert Stevens

We present a programmatic interface (SKOS API) and editor for working with the Simple Knowledge Organisation System SKOS. The SKOS API has been designed to work with SKOS models at a high level of abstraction to aid developers of applications that use SKOS. We describe a SKOS editor (SKOSEd) that is built on the Protege 4 framework using the OWL and SKOS API. As well as exploring the benefits of the principled extensibility afforded by this approach, we also explore the limitations placed upon SKOS by restricting SKOSEd to OWL-DL.

Keywords: API, Editor, OWL, SKOS, Evaluation, Knowledge Management, Ontology Engineering, Performance Engineering, Scalability, Semantic Web, Semantic Desktop, Test, Validation
