The Use of Ontologies as a Backbone for Software Engineering Tools

  title={The Use of Ontologies as a Backbone for Software Engineering Tools},
  author={Dirk Deridder and Bart Wouters},
The last few years research e orts concerning ontologies in computer science and arti cial intelligence have been focussed on methodologies, formalisms and tools to build and to browse ontologies. Although everybody is convinced of the power and use of ontologies, until now no real prove exists of their potential in the domain of Software Engineering. In every phase of software engineering, communication is one of the major activities (in duration as well as importance). Throughout the whole… CONTINUE READING
