I'm actually interested in the immediate reasoning on the DB if that is what
you are
suggesting.  I want to do intelligent querrying immediately onto the DB
benefitting from the performacne improvement a DB can give me.  I mean, I
want to search through my ontology and suggest things to the user to improve
his search using the ontology, but I don't think this is possible with a
large structure using a Description Logic like OIL+DAML.  So I thought a DB
would be interesting in this respect.  Suggestions are always welcome, thank
you very much for the  pointers I allready received.
