The Ontology Create service is used to create/import a new OWL ontology into the OSF Web Service instance.

This Web service is wrapper over the OWLAPI ontology library. It wraps all the needed functionality related to ontology creation or import. Most of the related API has been implemented. Effectively, this Web service (with its other related services) turns the OWLAPI into a Web service API.

Developers communicate with the Ontology Create Web service using the HTTP POST method. You may request one of the following mime types: (1) text/xml, (2) application/rdf+xml, (3) application/rdf+n3 or (4) application/json. The content returned by the Web service is serialized using the mime type requested and the data returned depends on the parameters selected.

For full documentation on this Web service, see Ontology Create.
