OWL XGX is software which converts from the optional XML serialization for OWL 2 to the required RDF/XML syntax, following the standard mapping. Used with GRRDL and a suitable XSLT 2 processor, it allows OWL tools which normally consume RDF/XML documents to automatically also consume OWL XML documents.
OWL XGX stands for "OWL XML GRDDL XSLT".
In general, when using GRDDL, use of XGX should be automatic, so users never need to know they are using it.
Users and applications may, of course, download and use XGX manually (subject to the W3C Software License, an Open Source license).
OWL XGX was developed in July 2009 by Sandro Hawke, at the request of the OWL Working Group. As of this writing (October 2009), no one else has yet reported using it; it should be considered alpha-test quality.
The source code, along with some testing infrastructure, is available at our CVS respository.
Please report bugs, issues, ideas, etc to firstname.lastname@example.org (a list with a public archive), and be sure to include the text "xgx" somewhere in the subject. Please include all details about your software and platform; note that XSLT 2.0 is required.
