A Query Formulation Language for the Data Web
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering
By Mustafa Jarrar,Marios D. Dikaiakos
Issue Date:May 2012
pp. 783-798
We present a query formulation language (called MashQL) in order to easily query and fuse structured data on the web. The main novelty of MashQL is that it allows people with limited IT skills to explore and query one (or multiple) data sources without pri...
 
Querying the Data Web: The MashQL Approach
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Mustafa Jarrar, Marios D. Dikaiakos
Issue Date:May 2010
pp. 58-67
MashQL, a novel query formulation language for querying and mashing up structured data on the Web, doesn't require users to know the queried data's structure or the data itself to adhere to a schema. In this article, the authors address the fact that being...
 
Arabic ontology engineering-challenges and opportunities
Found in: Proceedings of the 2011 International Conference on Intelligent Semantic Web-Services and Applications (ISWSA '11)
By Mustafa Jarrar
Issue Date:April 2011
pp. 1-1
The Internet and the open connectivity environments created a strong demand for the sharing of data semantics, as in e-commerce, interoperability, search and retrieval, bioinformatics, e-Government, digital libraries, HR, and many others. Ontologies are us...
     
Towards query optimization for the data web: disk-based algorithms: trace equivalence and bisimilarity
Found in: Proceedings of the 1st International Conference on Intelligent Semantic Web-Services and Applications (ISWSA '10)
By Ala' Hawash, Anton Deik, Bilal Farraj, Mustafa Jarrar
Issue Date:June 2010
pp. 1-7
Companies, Communities, Research Labs, and even Governments are all competing on publishing structured data in the web in many forms such as RDF and XML. Many Datasets are now being published and linked together, including Wikipedia, Yago, DBLP, IEEE, IBM,...
     
Mapping ORM into OWL 2
Found in: Proceedings of the 1st International Conference on Intelligent Semantic Web-Services and Applications (ISWSA '10)
By Mustafa Jarrar, Rami Hodrob
Issue Date:June 2010
pp. 1-7
The goal of this article is to map between Object Role Modeling (ORM) and Ontology Web Language 2 (OWL 2 DL). This mapping allows one to graphically develop his/her ontology using the ORM notation, while the ORM is automatically translated into OWL 2 DL. W...
     
MashQL: a query-by-diagram topping SPARQL
Found in: Proceeding of the 2nd international workshop on Ontologies and nformation systems for the semantic web (ONISW '08)
By Marios D. Dikaiakos, Mustafa Jarrar
Issue Date:October 2008
pp. 1001-1001
This article is motivated by the importance of building web data mashups. Building on the remarkable success of Web 2.0 mashups, and specially Yahoo Pipes, we generalize the idea of mashups and regard the Internet as a database. Each internet data source i...
     
Position paper: towards the notion of gloss, and the adoption of linguistic resources in formal ontology engineering
Found in: Proceedings of the 15th international conference on World Wide Web (WWW '06)
By Mustafa Jarrar
Issue Date:May 2006
pp. 497-503
In this paper, we first introduce the notion of gloss for ontology engineering purposes. We propose that each vocabulary in an ontology should have a gloss. A gloss basically is an informal description of the meaning of a vocabulary that is supposed to ren...
