> Hi all,
> I am fairly new to the world of ontology, so need your help in
> understanding certain basic fundamentals. I would like to understand what
> advantage does one get in creating an ontology. After all, it has an XML
> representation of the data. So why not store the data that an ontology would
> represent in plain XML itself? Also if we talk about domain modelling, this
> is possible in other tools like UML, so what advantage does Ontology tools
> like Protege have over  other modelling tools?
> I am sorry to be too naive here, but I really need help in understanding
> these basic features in ontology.
> Thanks,
> Daya.
