Protégé - a key to success

Last year, I chose a course about Semantic Technologies and I had to develop an Ontology using OWL and test it with Protégé. I was familiar with OWL coding so at first I started writing the code with a txt editor. But as I was inserting new  classes, I realized that typing all this code would be a waste of time.  So, I decided to work on Protégé which generates the code.

After googling for a while, I found this great tutorial by Matthew Horridge and his team. I downloaded the 1.2 Edition. I highly recommend  this tutorial to anybody who intends to work with Protégé and OWL ontologies.

From the official site of Protégé:
Protégé is a free, open source ontology editor and knowledge-base framework.

The Protégé platform supports two main ways of modeling ontologies via the Protégé-Frames and Protégé-OWL editors. Protégé ontologies can be exported into a variety of formats including RDF(S), OWL, and XML Schema. (more)

Protégé is based on Java, is extensible, and provides a plug-and-play environment that makes it a flexible base for rapid prototyping and application development. (more)
Protégé is supported by a strong community of developers and academic, government and corporate users, who are using Protégé for knowledge solutions in areas as diverse as biomedicine, intelligence gathering, and corporate modeling.

Cheers,

Angeliki
