The TwoUse Toolkit is a free, open source tool bridging the gap between Semantic Web and Model Driven Software Development. It is an implementation of current OMG and W3C standards for developing ontology-based software models and model-based OWL ontologies.

If you are a model driven software developer, you can:

  • Describe your UML Classes using OWL class descriptions.
  • Semantically search for classes, properties and instances in your UML model.
  • Model variability using OWL class
  • Extent software design patterns with OWL class descriptions
  • Transform your graphical models to OWL2 functional syntax
  • Make sense of your modeling inference explanations
  • Browse classes, subclasses, properties and individuals using the Class Hierarchy Viewer and the Entity Browser.
  • Write queries using SAIQL or SPARQL-DL Functional Syntax
  • Validate BPMN model refinements

If you are an OWL ontology engineer, you can:

  • Graphically model OWL ontologies and OWL safe rules using OMG UML Profile for OWL and UML Profile for SWRL.
  • Graphically model OWL ontologies and OWL Safe Rules using the TwoUse Graphical Editor.
  • Graphically model and store ontology design patterns as templates.
  • Transform your graphical models to OWL2 functional syntax
  • Write and safe SPARQL queries using the SPARQL Editor with syntax highlight.
  • Specify and safe OWL ontologies using the OWL2 functional syntax with syntax highlight.
  • Write queries using SAIQL or SPARQL-DL Functional Syntax
