You should rather call it ontology.java, so at least it would be
platform-independent :-)

More seriously, ontologies are not programs. They are used by programs
for doing something.
Just like putting a bunch of data into a database is not going to give
you an application, putting some knowledge into an ontology is not
enough for having a program. Figuring out what you want to do is
specific to your goal, and therefore others cannot do it for you. After
that, for doing what you want to do, you may find that reusing some
general knowledge is useful, and this is where ontologies come into the
picture.
I hope this helps
Olivier
