The Jena-Based Ontology Model Inference andRetrieval Application


Ontology as an important representation model of semantic web has valuable application. A new ontology model on the basis of Computer Graphics (CG) knowledge is proposed, called CG ontology model. The protégé is used to build this ontology model conveniently. The Jena API is applied to store CG owl documents in MySQL, set inference rule and achieve search queries on the ontology database. Finally, the Jena-based ontology model retrieval system is developed.
