Alignment API is a development tool that allows various ontology matchers to share the same format and interface.

Alignment API is a development tool that allows various ontology matchers to share the same format and interface for accessing matching results.

Using ontologies is the privileged way to achieve interoperability among heterogeneous systems within the Semantic web. However, as the ontologies underlying two systems are not necessarily compatible, they may in turn need to be reconcilied. Ontology reconciliation requires most of the time to find the correspondences between entities (e.g., classes, objects, properties) occuring in the ontologies. We call a set of such correspondences an alignment. We have designed a format for expressing alignments in a uniform way. The goal of this format is to be able to share on the web the available alignments. The format is expressed in RDF, so it is freely extensible.

Here are some key features of "Alignment API":

?пїЅ Storing, finding, and sharing alignments;
?пїЅ Piping alignment algorithms (improving an existing alignment);
?пїЅ Manipulating (thresholding and hardening);
?пїЅ Generating processing output (transformations, axioms, rules);
?пїЅ Comparing alignments.

What's New in This Release:

?пїЅ Suppressed language dependent (OWLAPI) alignments (impl)
?пїЅ Deprecated OWLAPIAlignment to be replaced by ObjectAlignment
?пїЅ Reimplemented the whole API in function of the onto package (impl)
?пїЅ Added an abstract ontology package allowing to change API (onto)
?пїЅ Added Jena 2.5 ontology plug-in (onto)
