12. Ontologies: RDF Business Models > 12.3. OWL Use Cases and Requirements

OWL Use Cases and Requirements

As with most W3C efforts, you can track the progress of work within any one activity by the state and version of the documents released. The first document released by the WebOnt group on OWL listed a set of requirements for an ontology language, followed by documents for test cases, abstract syntax and semantics, and, finally, a language reference and user guide.

The roots for OWL exist in the OWL Use Cases and Requirements document, released in July 2002 and recently updated. According to this document, we’ve been working with ontologies all along by using vocabularies such as ones I’ve used in the book like Dublin Core and PostCon. These are ontologies because they define the data for a specific knowledge domain, which is what the Use Case and Requirements document defines as ontology.
