RE: DAML-S parsing

In theory, DAML-S is should be a collection of DAML+OIL ontologies for
describing services, so yes you should be able to use the DAML API to
process it. However, the DAML-S folks have chosen to actually use mostly
RDFS to define there ontologies, so the DAML API does not process it very
well. (DAML-S uses RDFS:Class rather than DAML:Class, RDF:Property rather
than DAML:Property, and so on...)  
The attached XSLT file will transform the RDFS elements into their DAML
equivalents. You can preprocess an RDFSish DAML file using the attached file
using Xalan from  <http://xml.apache.org/> http://xml.apache.org/  (or other
XSL processor) then the DAML API can handle it.
This transform will most likely be incorporated, in some form, into the next
version of the DAML API.

works good if you want to do a bit of customized parsing

Subject: DAML-S parsing

Hi all.


I am currently making some research for my final undergraduate thesis
project. This involves matchmaking of web services over the semantic web. 

One of my priorities is to find a parser capable of parsing DAML and DAML-S.
Anyone has an idea in this regard?
