I am pleased to announce EulerGUI 1.6 , a development environment for
Semantic Web technologies, including rules, written in Java, under
LGPL licence .
It is a turntable centered on the N3 language for RDF and rules [1] .

It integrates the Jena parser and writer, ARQ to send SPARQL queries.
It reads and writes plain XML files, leveraging XML Schema.
It has an editor based on jEdit, with syntax coloring for N3 and
tooltips for properties' RDF labels and comments (soon term
It also integrates Pellet, the OWL reasonner, and importers for UML,
XMI, eCore, and Java byte code.

However, the emphasis in on rules. The native format is N3 logic from
the W3C, with 4 different engines, including one based on the Drools
RETE engine, that allows a stateful Knowledge Base.
There is also a translator from SWRL rules to N3 rules ( written in N3
logic ! ) .
The Euler engine in Prolog has capability to apply rules on rules,
extensive support for lists, and many builtins including RIF builtins.
Some things are still rough: error handling, messages in standard error.
