    Presentations and Demos

  • A detailed discussion of the OWL-QL syntax.
  • The XML Schema definition of our OWL-QL syntax is defined in owl-ql.xsd and owl-qlvar.xsd. Note that OWL-QL messages make use of the RDF namespace, but that there is no XML Schema document describing either RDF or OWL.
  • Some example queries.
  • Download the OWL-QL toolkit as a .zip file
  • OWL-QL Query Service Demo
