GRCI Components for Ontology Driven Push

UML based tools

computationally tractable representation of DAML ontologies using UML based tools, including UML visualizations, DAML ontologies, and Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) data structure representations. A DAML-Enhanced UML Tool (DEUT) will be developed to interactively construct ontologies and investigate their articulations. UML tools (Rational ROSE)  and VBs Latest
