Usage

Help

$ java -jar target/profilechecker-1.1.0.jar -h
Usage: profilechecker.jar <ontology.owl> [profile]

Available profiles:
OWL2_DL (OWL 2 DL)
OWL2_QL (OWL 2 QL)
OWL2_EL (OWL 2 EL)
OWL2_RL (OWL 2 RL)
OWL2_FULL (OWL 2 DL) -default-
--all

(Modify the version number 1.1.0 above to correspond to the output of your build)

The <ontology.owl> parameter can be given as a local file name or an absolute IRI.

Default profile

With only ontology IRI or file name, will check against default profile (OWL 2 Full):

$ java -jar target/profilechecker-1.1.0.jar https://cdn.rawgit.com/owlcs/pizza-ontology/v1.5.0/pizza.owl

Exit code is 0 if the ontology conforms to OWL 2 Full, in which case there should be no output on STDERR.

Specify OWL2 profile

Checking against a specific profile:

$ java -jar target/profilechecker-1.1.0.jar https://cdn.rawgit.com/owlcs/pizza-ontology/v1.5.0/pizza.owl OWL2QLProfile

Use of non-superclass expression in position that requires a
  superclass expression:
  ObjectAllValuesFrom(<http://www.co-ode.org/ontologies/pizza/pizza.owl#hasTopping>
  ObjectUnionOf(<http://www.co-ode.org/ontologies/pizza/pizza.owl#MozzarellaTopping>
  <http://www.co-ode.org/ontologies/pizza/pizza.owl#TomatoTopping>))
  [SubClassOf(<http://www.co-ode.org/ontologies/pizza/pizza.owl#Margherita>
  ObjectAllValuesFrom(<http://www.co-ode.org/ontologies/pizza/pizza.owl#hasTopping>
  ObjectUnionOf(<http://www.co-ode.org/ontologies/pizza/pizza.owl#MozzarellaTopping>
  <http://www.co-ode.org/ontologies/pizza/pizza.owl#TomatoTopping>)))
  in <http://www.co-ode.org/ontologies/pizza/pizza.owl>] 
(..)

Exit code is 0 if the ontology conforms to the specified profile, with errors logged to STDERR.

The ontology profile can be specified in any of these forms (in order of preference):

  • OWL2_DL (Profiles enum value)
  • http://www.w3.org/ns/owl-profile/DL (IRI of OWL profile)
  • DL (relative IRI of OWL profile)
  • OWL2DLProfile (classname)

All profiles

Checking against all profiles:

$ java -jar target/profilechecker-1.1.0.jar https://cdn.rawgit.com/owlcs/pizza-ontology/v1.5.0/pizza.owl --all
OWL2_DL: OK
OWL2_QL: 52 violations
OWL2_EL: 66 violations
OWL2_RL: 188 violations
OWL2_FULL: OK

Exit code is 0 if the ontology conforms to all profiles. The violation count per profile is output to STDOUT.

Warnings

Note that any warnings or errors logged from the OWLAPI (prefix [main]) during ontology loading do not necessarily mean violation against the profile:

$ java -jar target/profilechecker-1.1.0.jar ~/Desktop/annotated.ttl --all
[main] ERROR uk.ac.manchester.cs.owl.owlapi.OWLOntologyManagerImpl - Illegal redeclarations of entities: reuse of entity http://example.com/annotatedOntology#property1 in punning not allowed [Declaration(AnnotationProperty(<http://example.com/annotatedOntology#property1>)), Declaration(ObjectProperty(<http://example.com/annotatedOntology#property1>))]
OWL2_DL: 1 violations
OWL2_QL: 1 violations
OWL2_EL: 1 violations
OWL2_RL: 1 violations
OWL2_FULL: OK
