[protege-discussion] using Ontoclean in Protege

Hi Valerie,

In case you are using a Protege ontology, make sure you followed the 
instructions (for which step do you encounter difficulties?):

 From the website:

    * Make sure you have installed the PAL Constraints tab
    * Include
      the OntoClean ontology in your project
    * Change the metaclass of your top-level classes
      and their subclasses
      to "OntoClean property." If you know that your class is a type, a
      quasi-type, a phased sortal, etc., you can change its metaclass to
      any of these more specific subclasses of "OntoClean property."
      Then some of the values for metaproperties will be set automatically.
    * Set appropriate values for meta-properties for your classes
    * Use the PAL Constraints tab to verify your constraints"

In case you are using Protege-OWL or just to have more updated info, check:

 It includes an OWL version of ontoclean.

 Bonne chance!


> Hello,

> I have already read:

> The Ontoclean Tutorial at
> In the Tutorial, I understood that metaproperties (I, O, U, D, R) have to be assigned to each class. I don't find how to do this in Protege.
> Then, the metaproperties have to be analyzed in order to check and reclassify the taxonomy: is this processed automatically in Protege?
