NAME ^

OWL::DirectSemantics::Translator - lift an OWL2 model from an RDF model

SYNOPSIS ^

  use RDF::Trine;
  my $model = RDF::Trine::Model->temporary_model;
  RDF::Trine::Mode->parse_url_into_model($url, $model);
  
  use OWL::DirectSemantics;
  my $translator = OWL::DirectSemantics::Translator->new;
  my $ontology   = $translator->translate($model);

DESCRIPTION ^

This translator is only about 90% complete.

Constructor

new

Creates a new translator object, primed and ready for action!

Method

translate($model [,$ontology_node])

Translates the data in the RDF::Trine::Model provided into OWL, returning an OWL::DirectSemantics::Element::Ontology object. The model is generally assumed to contain a single ontology.

$ontology_node is an optional RDF::Trine::Node object containing the ontology's URIor blank node identifier.

$model will be modified by the translation process. Any triples translated to OWL are removed from the model. Any triples remaining are ones that could not be translated. (If the model provided is OWL DL-compatible, there should be no triples remaining after translation.)

SEE ALSO ^
