Namespaces in ObjectLogic


Namespaces are used to distinguish same names for different intentions in different ontologies. For instance, a concept named "person" in ontology "car" is the same concept as the concept "person" in the ontology "finance". Hence, handling more than one definition of a concept “person” in different ontologies needs a mechanism to distinguish these concepts. ontoprise therefore uses the notion of namespaces in ObjectLogic, which enables RDF-like identifiers for objects, classes or properties.
