Ontology Adapter: OWL

Developer: Björn Endres

Description

This adapter simply provides access to OWL ontologies.

Characteristics

  • Since getSubclass() relations are not explicitly stored in OWL ontologies, they will be calculated for all classes upon the first call. This is very costy and should be avoided if possible.
