Development of an Educational Ontology for Java Programming (JLEO) with a Hybrid Methodology Derived from Conventional Software Engineering Process Models

Santhosh John
Abstract—“Semantic Web” refers to W3C’s vision of future web. It aims at a web of data, where information is linked up in such a way to be processable by devices and agents. In a wider canvas, semantic web can be seen as a huge engineering solution. Ontologies are playing the vital role in Semantic Web vision for its full-fledged implementation. Though lot of developments happened in this arena of ontology development in line with the implementation of semantic web, the standardization of process models, tools and methodologies are yet to be saturated. Researches in ontology engineering had pointed out that an effective ontology application development methodology with integrated tool support is a mandatory for its success. The researcher in his previous publication, proposed a hybrid methodology for ontology development by leveraging the well proven process models and methods of software engineering. This paper explains the philosophical, engineering aspects of the newly derived methodology and applies the same for the development of a Java Learning Educational Ontology (JLEO). JLEO organizes the learning hierarchy of Java Programming Language suitable to the related modules spread across the curriculum of Middle East College. An appropriate ontology editing tool has been used for the practical development of ontology.

Index Terms—Java programming, methodology, ontology development, semantic web.
