Abstract

Patterns are abstract entities of knowledge that are used throughout the lifecycle of a Web Application. In this paper, we give the motivation, prospects, and challenges of representing patterns within the Semantic Web framework. In doing so, we describe our experience of developing an ontology for Web Application patterns, OWAP. Examples of inferences and potential obstacles to ontological representation of patterns are presented.
