Hi Selma,

the module extraction algorithm in the paper you cited is implemented  
in the OWL API (not the Protégé-OWL API though) and in a prototype of  
a Protégé 4 plugin available at:

Furthermore, you can always use the web service at

in your application.

The implementation in Swoop is preliminary and not maintained, so we  
don't recommend using it.
