2020-06-05 10:21 Success: Defined workflow from Protégé OWL Ontology to JSON-LD representation

Define Person, Attribute and properties in Protégé OWL.

Protégé OWL 5.5 has a Save As / json-ld option

Copy contents of json-ld representation of ontology

Paste into JSON-LD Playground

2020-05-27 11:12 Revised proposal for workflow from ontology to json-ld


2020-05-26 22:18 Axiom constructs to OWL entities and properties

Axiom’s five basic data modeling constructs ←→ Closest OWL counterparts

objects ←→ entities
properties ←→ object properties, data properties ?
containers ←→ DAG fragments ?
object references ←→ entity IRIs
value metadata ←→ simple property ?

2020-05-04 16:05 Thoughts on Axiom

Why the ongoing dissatisfaction with existing schema languages?

  1. lack of common schema metadata

  2. clunky extensibility

  3. lack of human-friendly syntax

  4. lack of libraries for programmatic handling

Look at Evolveum complaints ⇐ Item 1, April 28, 2020: Evolveum on schema

Suggestion: JSON-LD’s @context gives a perfect way to avoid collisions in extensions

Quick Thoughts

Challenge: Express the Axiom Design Draft using currently available schema languages.

  • JSON-LD provides the ability to declare and use multiple namespaces.

  • See if the rest of the Axiom specification can be expressed in JSON-LD (which is itself valid JSON)

  • See if the identified shortcomings of other schema languages can be overcome with this approach

  • Midpoint user list as a place to start the discussion once this document is shareable

JSON-LD Example:

  "@context": "",
  "@type": "person",
  "name": "Brian Anderson",
  "jobTitle": "IAM Technologist",
  "url": "",
  "address": {
    "@type": "PostalAddress",
    "streetAddress": "2020 Ginko Ave",
    "addressLocality": "Nutown",
    "addressRegion": "New Florida",
    "postalCode": "94453",
    "addressCountry": "US"
  "email": "",
  "telephone": "+1 608 467-6846",
  "birthDate": "1997-03-10"

The Axiom Schema Language

“Axiom is a [proposed] data modeling language used to model data and metadata for Prism and the midPrivacy project, with the intention to replace XSD as the go-to modeling language for Prism.”

Evolveum team is prototyping Axiom use in the mP UI
