hi shadi,

do you think of using it like:

                 hasFeature                                    
isFeatureType
software ----------------> Automated Checks ------------------>
Functions

                 hasFeature                                    
isFeatureType
software ----------------> Manual Evaluation ------------------>
Functions

                 hasFeature                          isFeatureType
software ----------------> WCAG 1.0 ---------------------> Guidelines

regards,
Sandor

Hi,

Ref: <http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/tools/existingtools>

I am implementing the list of evaluation tools as a sortable page. Here
is the RDF model I plan to use for describing the tools, comments are
welcome:

  <earl:Software>
    <dc:title>Tool Name</dc:title>
    <dc:creator>Tool Vendor</dc:creator>
    <dc:date>2005-08-22</dc:date>
    <dc:hasVersion>1.2.3</dc:hasVersion>
    <dc:description>Cool Tool.</dc:description>
    <TBD:hasFeature rdf:resource="wizard"/>
  </earl:Software>

  <TBD:featureType rdf:about="interface">
    <dc:title>User Interface</dc:title>
  </TBD:featureType>

  <TBD:feature rdf:about="wizard">
    <dc:title>Wizard Interface</dc:title>
    <TBD:isFeatureType rdf:resource="interface"/>
    <dc:description>User interface that provides assistance
step-by-step.</dc:description>
  </TBD:feature>


As you see, I want to introduce two new classes and two properties for
this purpose:

  <rdfs:Class rdf:about="TBD#featureType">
    <rdfs:label xml:lang="en">Feature Type</rdfs:label>
    <rdfs:comment xml:lang="en">Specify a class of features
types.</rdfs:comment>
  </rdfs:Class>

  <rdfs:Class rdf:about="TBD#feature">
    <rdfs:label xml:lang="en">Feature</rdfs:label>
    <rdfs:comment xml:lang="en">Specify a feature.</rdfs:comment>
  </rdfs:Class>

  <rdf:Property rdf:about="TBD#hasFeature">
    <rdfs:label xml:lang="en">Has Feature</rdfs:label>
    <rdfs:comment xml:lang="en">Describe features of a
Software.</rdfs:comment>
    <rdfs:domain
rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/EARL/nmg-strawman#Software"/>
    <rdfs:range rdf:resource="TBD#feature"/>
  </rdf:Property>

  <rdf:Property rdf:about="TBD#isFeatureType">
    <rdfs:label xml:lang="en">Is Feature Type</rdfs:label>
    <rdfs:comment xml:lang="en">Describe type of
feature.</rdfs:comment>
    <rdfs:domain rdf:resource="TBD#feature"/>
    <rdfs:range rdf:resource="TBD#featureType"/>
  </rdf:Property>


Suggestions welcome.

Regards,
  Shadi
