[p4-feedback] SWRL editing in protégé 4

Hi All,

P4 build 110 will have basic editing support for rules. This is simply in
the form of a SWRL expression editor hooked up to the OWL API parser.
I will have to look at the serialisation issues (not supported by OWL/XML
and rendering of axiom annotations in RDF/XML).

> I use this solution: I edit SWRL rules with protege 3.4 save them in the
> .owl file and copy them in the protégé 4.0 .owl file, and open the file with
> protégé 4.0 where I can only browse the rules. In protégé 4.0 you can use
> pellet 1.5 or the plug-in pellet 2.0 to reason on SWRL rules without using

> My main problem is that when I open the .owl file with rules with protégé
> 4.0 I am not any more able to save it. If I want to change the ontology I
> have to remove the rules, change the ontology and insert them again.
> If you find a better solution please let us know!
