Ontology Testing - Methodology and Tool
2012 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Other academic)
Ontology engineering is lacking methods for verifying that ontological requirements are actually fulfilled by an ontology. There is a need for practical and detailed methodologies and tools for carrying out testing procedures and storing data about a test case and its execution. In this paper we first describe a methodology for conducting ontology testing, as well as three examples of this methodology for testing specic types of requirements. Next, we describe a tool that practically supports the methodology.We conclude that there is a need to support users in this crucial part of ontology engineering, and that our proposed methodology is a step in this direction.
