Transforming UML domain descriptions into configuration knowledge bases for the Semantic Web
MetadataShow full item record
In this chapter we emphasize how we can integrate Web-based sales systems for highly complex customizable products and services by making use of the descriptive representation formalisms of the Semantic Web. Building on the equivalence between the consistency based definition and the description logic based definition of configuration , we are capable of transforming our application domain-independent meta-model for modeling configuration knowledge  into the emerging standards of the Semantic Web initiative, such as DAML+OIL. Furthermore, we discuss how these standardized description languages can be used to derive capability descriptions for semantic configuration Web services.
