Hi Somaya --

You asked about inference engines that work over OWL.

The following engine stretches the definition of OWL a bit, but has other 
advantages, such as human-readable rules and a decidable but powerful 
inference method backed by a journal publication.

The engine is live, online, at the site below with a number of examples 
that you can view, run and change, using a browser.  You can also use a 
browser to write and run your own examples.

In case you prefer to simply view some rule sets directly without running 
them, you could start by looking at:





Some background about the approach is in the paper


and section 3 describes some of the online examples.

HTH,                    -- Adrian
