[p4-feedback] Setting up OWL API (protege 4.1) for eclipse

Hi Babar,

Assuming I understood your needs correctly, you don't need Protege for 
your project and you don't need to configure Eclipse to develop  
Protege.  What you need is the "OWL API" at .  You would download the OWL API jar 
file and add it to an Eclipse (or any other Java IDE)  Java project and 
then try the examples from the documentation. Once you are familiar with 
the OWL API, you can then start building your custom OWL-based 
application. Having said this, it might be useful to look at how Protege 
4 uses the OWL API behind the scenes because there might be some Protege 
specific classes/APIs that could help you with your project.  See for Protege 4 
documentation but this documentation is focused on Protege 4 development 
instead of ontology and OWL programming.

Where could I find instructions for 4.1 OR how could I do. Kindly do realize that I don't want to develop plugin for protege but I want to configure eclipse for making my ontology application, say running 'OWLAPIDemoApplication' OR 'Travel Ontology'.
