Abstract

This paper presents the open source reference implementation of RuleML based on modular XML Schema definitions and bidirectional OO jDREW interpreters written in Java. For the family of RuleML sublanguages, schema modularization and RDF rules are discussed. The central bidirectional interpreters are introduced via jDREW principles, and explained w.r.t. OO jDREW slots, types, OIDs, and extensions.
