Keyword(s): description logic reasoners; interface; jena; semantic web; OWL
Abstract: Description logic reasoners are becoming more widely used for reasoning about resources on the Semantic Web. To allow client tools to interact with different reasoners in a standard way, a common standard interface is highly desirable. The DIG Description Logic Interface is a proposed standard that provides just this capability. In the process of implementing a DIG adapter for the Jena Semantic Web toolkit, we have noted a number of problems and shortcomings in the DIG standard, version 1.1. This report summarises these issues, and makes specific suggestions as an input to the next version of the DIG standard.
