Although the semantic web standards are established, applications and uses of the data are relatively limited. This is partly due to high learning curve and efforts demanded in building semantic web and ontology-based applications. In this paper, we describe an ontology application management framework that aims to simplify creation and adoption of a semantic web application. The framework supports application development in ontology- database mapping, recommendation rule management and application templates focusing on semantic search and recommender system applications. We present some case studies that adopted our application framework in their projects. Evolution of the software tool significantly profited from the semantic web research community in Thailand who has contributed both in terms of the tool development and adoption support.
