Key Features of WSML

  • Three pillars of WSML, namely 
    • a language independent conceptual model for Ontologies, Web Services, Goals and Mediators, based on WSMO
    • Reuse of several well-known logical language paradigms in one syntactical framework
    • Web Compliance
  • One syntactic framework for a set of layered languages
    • Different Semantic Web and Semantic Web Service applications need languages of different expressiveness 
    • No single language paradigm will be sufficient for all use cases
    • WSML investigates the use of Description Logics and Logic Programming for Semantic Web Services
  • Separation of conceptual and logical modeling
    • The conceptual syntax of WSML has been designed in such a way that it is independent of the underlying logical language
    • No or only limited knowledge of logical languages is required for the basic modeling of Ontologies, Web Services, Goals, and Mediators
    • The logical expression syntax allows expert users to refine definitions on the conceptual syntax using the full expressive power of the underlying logic, which depends on the particular language variant chosen by the user
