Subject: RE: [ebcore] Semantic alignment support in CPPA

Hi Farrukh,

The OWL query support definitely sounds relevant.

The SET TC has also developed OWL ontologies for UNCEFACT CCTS that are

David Webber can explain their progress so far to us, and relate it to
his CAM versions of similar functionality. The SET TC has actually been
more ambitious than developing support for simple semantic alignment
constraints/rules and are seeking automatic mapping between diverse
message sets (UBL and GS1, for example) that each have a CC

CPPA just needs to have a survey of existing approaches so that for
version 3.0, suitable containers can be defined to organize the
information that constitutes the agreement on "semantic" conventions
(philosophically viewed, these conventions will of course really just be
more agreements about syntactic rules that we think of as constraining
the intended semantics).

Your explanation of the examples and maybe how to reference the
information (or regrep query for it!) would I think be very useful.

Subject: [ebcore] Semantic alignment support in CPPA

Hi Dale,

Can you tell me what I need to read for background regarding semantic 
alignment support in CPPA.
in RegRep 4 we have an OWL profile 2.0 which supports semantic alignment

via the RegRep query interface.

An example use case in weather domain that I am familiar with is:

Find all datasets that have a dataset field matching specified fieldname

OR any other field name that is semantically similar to specified 
fieldname WHERE similarity threshold may be specified as a float value 
between 0.0 (no similarity) and 1.0 (completely synonymity).

The capability uses domain ontologies along with alignment ontologies to

determine similar terms.

Does this sort of functional sound relevant?
