We propose a reuse-based method for ontology development by exploiting the similarities in the structures of XML documents and ontology. We apply the method to write the ontology for e-procurement with OWL, which spans the trading cycle: Order, OrderResponse, OrderCancellation, DispatchAdvice, ReceiptAdvice and Invoice. The paper consists of four contributions: 1. An analysis of the ontology types for Internet commerce; 2. An illustration of how to reuse existing XML-based standards including reuses of architecture, XML Schema and other standards; 3. A tool presented to validate if an instance is consistent with the ontology; 4. Three issues are discussed: applicability of the method, the hardest things by our experiences and tools needed to support the method. Meanwhile, this research also shows previous investments on XML in industry are very useful for the corresponding ontology development.
