[protege-owl] API as Ontology

im trying to generate an ontology out of an API. Now i wonder if how i
should represent the different elements. Some essential questions bother me

Should an Object be represented as a concept or as an instance? When i
represent them as concepts should a function be represented as the instance
of its Object concept or is it better to represent functions as instances of
a generell concept called "function"?
My first thought was to represent classes (objects) as concepts and their
functions as instances. I tried to google similar works for inspirations but
with no success yet.

I would really enjoy a little discussion about this and your thoughts. If
you know about "API ontologies" i would really appreciate it if you could
forward me.
