Mapping UML sequence diagram into the web ontology language OWL
In this paper, we propose a new mapping technique from the OMG's UML modeling language into the Web Ontology Language (OWL) to serve the Semantic Web. UML (Unified Modeling Language) is widely accepted and used as a standardized modeling language in Object-Oriented Analysis (OOA) and Design (OOD) approach by domain experts to model real-world objects in software development. On the other hand, the conceptualization, which is represented in OWL, is designed to process the content of information rather than just present the information. Therefore, the matter of migrating UML to OWL is becoming an energetic research domain. OWL (Web Ontology Language) is a Semantic Web language designed for defining ontologies on the Web. An ontology is a formal specification naming and definition of shared data. This technique describes how to map UML Models into OWL and allows us to keep semantic of UML sequence diagrams such as messages, the sequence of messages, guard invariant, etc. to make data of UML sequence diagrams machine-readable.
