Service Communautaire d'Information sur la Recherche et le Développement - CORDIS


A huge effort has been invested in the development of schema structures for existing information systems, such as XML-DTD, XML-Schema, relational database schemata or UML specifications of object-oriented software systems. The LiFT tool semi-automatically extracts light ontologies from such legacy resources. We restrict our attention to the most important ones, namely the W3C schema languages for XML: Document Type Definitions (DTDs), XML Schema and relational database schemata. We also provide a preliminary translation from UML-based software specifications to ontologies.
