Re: SHACL for OWL2

Regarding OWL, is there a definite list of syntax rules somewhere that
could be tested? I am also wondering whether the OWL W3C Working Group had
made such a checker mandatory for OWL implementations (as Peter requests we
make mandatory for SHACL).


Here's a pointer to the documentation on conformance testing, a link to the
test cases, the structural and FSS spec,  the OWL to RDF mapping document,
and the OWL/XML  and Manchester Syntax documents.

The structural and mapping documents are the most relevant; the former is
needed to understand the latter.

OWL 2 Web Ontology Language Conformance:

Test cases:

Structural Specification  and Functional Style Syntax

OWL 2 Mapping to RDF :

Manchester Syntax:

I am trying to use SHACL to validate OWL 2 ontologies to enforce proper
encoding of OWL in RDF. Is there any work done in this area ? Is it
feasible ?
