The Protege (3) OWL API is an older API with a long history. It was
started while the (DAML) standard was at a fairly early stage and is
warped a bit from the attempt to get an OWL API to work on top of
frames. The primary motivation for using this API is that you might
need some features that come with Protege 3 that you would not be able
to access with the Manchester OWL API.
The Manchester OWL API is a more recent api which is very elegantly
written and is based closely on standards. I think that this is an
excellent OWL API because the coding is done at the level abstraction of
the OWL specification. The Manchester OWL api is what is used by Protege 4.
